Perhaps best known for deeply cerebral, avant garde musicianship, Thurston Moore is also capable of playing it straight.
Sometimes, just sometimes, Thurston Moore can write a love song. Thankfully, when he does, the Sonic Youth legend can tear at both your heart strings and his guitar strings.
'Heavenmetal' is taken from the Chelsea Light Moving debut album, and represents one of Moore's most touching, tender moments.
Given the video treatment in time for Valentine's Day, the shoot was filmed and directed in Paris by artist Julien Langendorff.
Filmed over the winter months, the video explores poetry, magick and friendship.
Watch it now.
