Okkervil River's Will Sheff (frontman) says,
"Like many kids of the late 70s and early 80s, my dad was often hovering around with a Super 8 camera, filming my mom and me and – as time passed – my younger brother and sister. I remember him projecting these movies on a bare wall and, eventually, the movies becoming as much a part of my memory as the original events he had filmed. I thought it would be cool to use actual footage of those memories in the video itself, to make a really personal kind of rock video."
Under the album I Am Very Far, "Your Past Life as a Blast" takes us to William's past life through pleasant harmonies and memoirs. It is quite sweet.
