Matador Records artist Majical Cloudz (real name Devon Welsh) called in some parental assistance for the visual accompaniment to “Childhood’s End.” Starring in the chilling, heartbreaking black and white video is the younger Welsh’s father Kenneth Welsh, known to TV enthusiasts as Windom Earle from Twin Peaks. The elder Welsh plays a lonely janitor with a surprising (and perhaps hidden) artistic talent who seems to have reached his limit as he stands before a stopped train and begs it to move forward on the icy, frozen tracks. “Childhood’s End” is taken from Majical Cloudz’s forthcoming label debut Impersonator, set for release on May 21st. Tickets and information for the May 10th show at Union Transfer with Youth Lagoon can be found here. Watch the video, directed by Emily Kai Bock, below.
