Earlier this month, multi-instrumentalist George and vocalist Yuria of Pinky Doodle Poodle released a new music video for “Shaking.” The song was featured on their Samsara EP through Austin-based label Chicken Ranch Records, which includes acoustic arrangements for both “Shaking” and “Please” from past albums and their new song “Samsara.”
Directed by Lucy Calhoun, the video is a circus of bizarre vignettes threaded by the image of an unsteady wooded walk that eventually becomes diaphanous, overlaid upon itself, casting shadows. Intermittently, George and Yuria can be seen at various Athens locations, sometimes dancing and looking up at the sky. The visuals align themselves with the urgency of the music—fast-paced acoustic strumming and quick jangling, as if being dragged to a ritual of fire.
