If you’re wondering what David Patrick Lowery has been doing since we named his short Pioneer the best locally made film of 2011, here’s the music video he and Toby Halbrooks shot for School of Seven Bells‘ “Lafaye.”

If you’re familiar with Lowery’s previous work, you’ll recognize the hallmarks of his visual style: flickering candlelight, ghostly presences, and antique backdrop provided by the old house in south Dallas where this was filmed. Yet SVIIB’s electronic pop gives the visuals a more modern tint. The contrast works pretty well, I’d say.
