video: "What Am I Gonna Do" - Robert Earl Thomas

words: Michael Brooks

“What Am I Gonna Do”, the second single off Robert Earl Thomas’ forthcoming album Another Age, is a sincere and beautifully agonizing ode to introspection. Thomas, who plays guitar in Widowspeak, excels at making airy and benevolent indie rock that brings to mind artists like Van Morrison and Bruce Springsteen. His music sounds like something you might only discover after dusting off an old record tucked away in your attic. The black and white video accentuates the songs desolate sway as Thomas strolls through the streets of New York City in an almost dreamlike manner, echoing the sentiment of uncertainty that lingers within the track.
