Christian Beach has released an official music video for “Missing Link,” the third single off his recently released album, Basement Noise.
“The song began as an experiment in lyric writing,” said Beach. “I was reading an article in a songwriting magazine about breaking down various rhyming schemes in a way that causes tension in the listener, so that’s really how ‘Missing Link’ came about.”
The video was shot at the Abbott Marshlands at Roebling Memorial Park just outside Trenton in Hamilton Township (Mercer County), N.J. Featured prominently are the remains of the grand staircase that, in the early 1900s, was used to connect people with that location’s Spring Lake and a long-gone trolley station and amusement park on the bluffs overlooking the lake. It represents a physical and literal missing link to a bygone era.
Basement Noise, a collection of previously unreleased material, is available now via Beach’s Bandcamp site and distributed to streaming and download services, such as iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and GooglePlay, through DistroKid.
