video: "I Saw Your Spirit" - Backwards Dancer

Former member of the Hotelier, Zack Shaw released the self-titled debut of Backwards Dancer earlier this month, and with it came the glorious single "I Saw Your Spirit." In the seemingly vintage video treatment that depicts an automobile accident and a walk about town, Shaw sings earnestly of one who has since departed, leaving only a spirit behind. From the rustling of leaves to the blistering rain, Shaw is constantly sensing that departure, and the emotion of being perpetually aware is reflected in a blossoming chorus and unraveling instrumentals. It's dramatic and moving, a stirring secret of continuing on that lingers with you.
