BROOKLYN SONGWRITER RUE SNIDER ANNOUNCES NEW MUSIC VIDEO THE VIDEO, AN EXPLORATION OF LONELINESS IN NEW YORK CITY, RELEASES DECEMBER 12

Folk-punk/Americana singer songwriter Rue Snider will release the first official video from his second solo record, Broken Window, for the song “Crowd Into Trains” on December 12. A four song One On One Session of live, acoustic songs filmed at City Winery in Manhattan preceded this video’s release in November. Watch here

“Crowd Into Trains” is the only New York City-centric track on Broken Window and was an obvious choice to capture the energy and isolation of Rue’s home of eleven years. Shooting stuck to a strict DIY aesthetic utilizing only an iPhone 6s, a Panasonic DMC-ZS25 point and shoot camera, and a skeleton crew. The video was captured over two days in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Rue wrote, directed, and edited the footage himself. The video features local NYC actress Lindsay Nolin.

“There are many things about New York that are difficult to wrap your head around unless you spend a lot of time there,” says Rue. “The absence of car culture is one of those things. The extraordinary access to other humans but infrequency of meaningful interactions is another. The video captures loneliness through a missed connection. I hope the sadness makes people feel less alone.”

Rue Snider has toured America extensively for three years, making appearances at SXSW, Folk Alliance International, and North East Regional Folk Alliance. He has opened or played split bills with hundreds of performers including Tom Maxwell (Squirrel Nut Zippers), Nate Farley (Guided By Voices), Lou Poster (Grafton), Tropic of Pisces, Superhuman Happiness, Benjamin Scheuer (“The Lion”), Blue Healer, Donna Missal, and Walter Salas-Humara (the Silos).

Broken Window released October 7, 2016. The Broken Window Tour continues through March 2017.
