You could say the timing couldn’t be better. Just days after Hurricane Sandy tore things up on the East Coast, another storm is being unleashed–the new music video for Little Big Town’s new single, “Tornado.”
It also happens to be Halloween, an appropriate day for the release of the video, which is plenty spooky.
The video starts out with that haunting kind of calm and quiet–clothes gently rippling on the outside line, water slowly dripping, a gate creaking, darkness encroaching, and, one by one, eyes turning to the sky, as the wind–and the action–begins to pick up.
“I’m a tornado,” LBT’s Karen Fairchild sings at the start, “looking for a soul to take.” The song is about a woman seeking revenge, and that grim, dangerous opening sets the tone for the song (and video) as it propels forward.
It’s a dark, moody video that perfectly matches the tension set by the song itself–a dark but catchy song that is a full 180-degree turn from the summertime fun of the band’s last single, “Pontoon.”
And, of course, it’s a great one to add to your Halloween playlist.
