Before forming Ola Podrida, David Wingo worked as a composer on numerous independent films, yet his lyrics– especially on “Run Off the Road”– blend concrete nouns and stream-of-conscious imagery in a way that defies literal visual interpretation. But that only makes this ongoing video project so interesting: Each month, a different director will create a clip for a different song from Ola Podrida’s self-titled debut album. In August, Michael Tully shot a clip for “Photo Booth”. This month, Joe Swanberg, director of Hannah Takes the Stairs, created this quietly erotic piece for “Run Off the Road”. Instead of trying to play out the song’s narrative– about thwarted escape and going home to find it irrevocably changed– Swanberg shoots actors Erin Fisher and Kentucker Audley playing a couple spending an afternoon alone together. Shot in grainy stock, as if these moments are from a home movie long buried in the mind’s attic, the clip only hints at a world beyond these two lovers, leaving their fates ambiguous: are they in the throes of new passion or the autumn of a dying romance? October promises no answers.
