[Must Listen] Tiny Victories – Mr Bones

Those Of Us Still Alive cover art

Tiny Victories, consisting of Greg Walters and Cason Kelly, come by way of Brooklyn and have set their sights on ensuring anybody who listens to their music is in for a great treat. The sound is a synthesis of dreampop, chillwave, and electronic experimentation. To speak unpretentiously, their song “Mr Bones” is oozes with innovation but can be easily appreciated upon first listen…and the many repeats after that. It is incredible in accomplishing this one key aspect: It’s a song that can inspire the individual to not only believe but also compel that person to make the effort to pursue that desire. Given the romanticism of the song, there’s absolutely no doubt that this song will help make your summer.

If listening to the song isn’t enough, check out Tiny Victories official video, directed by Brian Bowman. The music blog All Things Go perfectly describes the video by discussing how:

“…waves on the screen mimic the song’s electronic chimes, evoking falling water. Soon quick cuts alternate between huge, sprawling city views and touching, personal early-morning moments. Shots of the pair setting up for a show are interspersed with views of Earth from space, and as the beat kicks in – after a minute of anticipation and buildup – a smooth vocal comes to provide a foundation for the rest of beats to play on.

The video snippets continue to flash intermittently in explosions of light, emphasizing the grandiose synthesized rhythms. But small, intimate moments always return, bringing balance to the huge images as the vocals do with the music. The video, like the EP, is about building up beautiful enormity and then zooming in to see the individual pieces that comprise it.”
