Memory Keepers share lyric video for "Faint Ink"

Austin’s Memory Keepers have shared a rad lyric video for their recently released single, “Faint Ink.” The lovely Week In Pop has the premiere of the video, which was done by visual analog artist, Astral Violet. About this, Jared Paul Boulanger of Memory Keepers had this to say:

Astral Violet is the moniker of analog mixed media visual artist Sydney Quezada. They’ve worked with artists like MBV, Roky Erickson, King Gizzard & more. Astral Violet’s stunning visual projections found them on some of the best bills in town (Austin, TX) as soon as they moved here, which is how we came to meet them. After they projected their light show on us at a few Memory Keepers gigs, we thought their trippy, visual experience would be the perfect backdrop to our new lyric video “Faint Ink”. It feels good to be completely absorbed in their light, while performing on stage...I could honestly watch their visuals for hours, sync’d to many types of music and be totally lost in space.
