The Trims release video for 'Around the Sun'

See also

Yesterday, The Trims released some choice visuals for their latest single, “Around the Sun.” The music video plays on both the aesthetics of the visual medium, as well as paying homage to the act’s connection to their ancient heritage.

The entirely black-and-white video was shot and edited by Whitney Dinneweth of Above the Cut Films. The film flows in energetic congruence with the disco-laden track, showing cuts that vacillate between silhouettes of band members in performance, city-scapes in fluent yet geometric perspectives, constant vertical and horizontal shadow-play and even the dance of a tribal figure.

Incidentally, that figure is Trims’ lead singer, Gabe Maciel, as he performs an ancient Aztec dance ceremony. Maciel, with a personal history of Aztec dance, comments:

“. . . It's called "Cazador" or "Hunter". It was my favorite dance to do when I was an active Danzante (Aztec Dancer)."

The inclusion of the dance hold true to the four--piece’s overall ethos of the video. Guitarist, Bryan Aguirre, comments further on the video’s essence:

“. . . the idea was something we collaborated with Whitney. We definitely wanted the use of the Danzantes to touch upon our Mexican heritage, but do so in a tasteful artistic way that we have never seen done before in a music video.”

The original track appeared on The Trims’ 2013 E.P. “Delete You After” and is available for stream or download on the band’s Bandcamp page and on

The video comes during a intensely busy time for the act. See the 'Related Articles' section for more info. Stay abreast of all things Trims related by visiting the band's Facebook page.
