The Wall Street Journal has premiered the video for “Emptiness” which was shot over several days in central Florida by Orlando filmmaker Jason Kupfer and producer Tighe Arnold. The Wall Street Journal says “The clip for the propulsive, wistful song shows Pond and some associates exploring a seemingly deserted town after dark, wandering down empty streets, settling into rooms in an empty motel, creeping into an empty movie theater while a film is flickering across the screen and crossing an empty public square where they find a diorama depicting themselves. Matt Pond explains, “I like loose arcs. I like Terrence Malick. You can jump into the middle of most Terrence Malick movies and enjoy it for the way it looks, even if you’re not sure what’s happening.”
