Marco Benevento Goes Retro in “Nature’s Change” Video

Marco Benevento has released a video for “Nature’s Change”, the 11th track from his latest studio album, ‘Let It Slide.” The clip was filmed by Benevento using VHS cameras, perfectly encapsulating a 1980s’ aesthetic that he’s been known to embrace in his work. It was then handed off to longtime friend Jon Wood (vocalist/guitarist in Talking Heads’ tribute band, Psycho Killers) who added animation to the clip, enhancing the song—which has become a barn-burner in Benevento’s album release tour this Fall—with a “psychedelic warble.”

Benevento and his band featuring bassist Karina Rykman and drummer Dave Butler kick off a ten show West Coast tour next Thursday in San Diego. It marks the third leg of shows, having already covered the Northeast and Midwest this October and November, in support of ‘Let It Slide.’ Following the West Coast tour in December, Benevento and company pick up again in 2020 with Texas and Southeast shows in January and a three night Colorado run in February.
