Kait Berreckman in and out of “Control” in new video
Omaha singer/songwriter Kait Berreckman teased her forthcoming album Battle Scenes by releasing its first single, “Control,” and accompanying music video Saturday at a show at Reverb Lounge Saturday.
In the video, directed by Tony Bonnaci, Berreckman wakes up bloodied and bruised and in a fantastic mood, shedding friendly concerns as she strolls delightfully through Omaha’s Benson neighborhood. “Control” is cheery with bright, bold guitar tones, while at the same time depicting a nervous layer of social dread and awkwardness underneath.
Watch the video for “Control” below.
Battle Scenes, the long-awaited follow up to Berreckman’s 2011 LP Conservation, is available for pre-order here, and releases later this summer.
