Video: Miss Tess “The Moon is an Ashtray”

This is a beautiful, imaginative video to complement a timeless song from Miss Tess.  It’s directed by Tom Krueger, who has created videos for many great artists, including David Bowie, U2 and Springsteen.  The video even features a villainous character, The Abductor, luring away innocent souls.  In the context of this magical, cinematic piece of art, that’s not as crazy as it sounds!  Miss Tess says: “The moon looks magical from far away, but up close, it’s a dry and barren landscape that catches the ashes of burned up dreams that have floated away. It’s all about perspective, you know?”  She makes a good point.
