The Cactus Blossoms Video for "Mississippi" Premieres on NPR Music!
NPR's All Songs TV just premiered The Cactus Blossoms' brand new video for "Mississippi!" On the heals of their performance of the song on Twin Peaks, the video was shot in their home state of Minnesota and sets an eerie scene as the protagonist jumps into the, cold dark waters of the Mississippi.
Of the song, Jack Torrey says "it's a mysterious journey of someone who gives up and jumps into the river as the golden sun sets in the distance. I'm not sure if he sinks or floats by the end, but there is a peaceful thing that happens when he contemplates all of the friends he'll never meet and sees her face shimmering on the water and fading away as he descends."
