Trace of Lime knows how to entertain in their new music video "Creature of Habit"





Trace of Lime knows how to entertain in their new music video "Creature of Habit"

 

Do you remember when The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and No Doubt were on the radio? When music videos were full of bright colors, weird angles, and sometimes flannel? Trace of Lime has achieved a nostalgia usually only brought on by watching a 90s hits playlist on Youtube. From the first second the video "Creature of Habit" started  till the last, I was drawn in to both old memories and admiration for the new music this amazing city is harboring. It's bands and music like this that made me want to start writing about them, and Trace of Like has only anchored the hope I've held for what Austin bands can bring us all.

 

These guys are fun, energetic, creative in every video from "Business" with a unique twist on the fable of "The Three Little Pigs"  to the out right blatancy of color in "Creature of Habit". There's always an obvious yet fun statement being made with every video they seem to do. "Creature of Habit" is "about dealing with things inevitably changing around you" the band says. A topic all too familiar today with Austinites dealing with Covid and our evolving city.

 

The video was written and directed by Jordan Karam, Trace of Limes lead Vocalist, who you see submerged in a solid world changing around him in the video. Dusana Risovic directed the video after hashing out the details with the band. "We wanted something visual to move the story, and chose red and blue because of their dynamic differences." In my personal opinion, this was an absolutely brilliant way to convey the message and keep up the pattern of fun play the band seems so good at doing.

 

Currently Trace of Lime are not playing any live shows, which has me screaming louder into the Universe to "PLEASE GIVE US LIVE SHOWS BACK!!!!!" It is an absolute travesty that a band so good as these guys, has to be quarantined away, fearfully until 2021. They are however, planning to finish work on their current album and have already started planning out the next fun video for us all to enjoy. Until then, check out "Creature of Habit" on YouTube, follow the guys on the social places @traceoflime, and keep your fingers crossed that we all get to see these guys play live again soon.
