Blessed "Waving Hand" (video)

Blessed "Waving Hand" (video)
Life is pain until you find your calling, and sometimes your calling is weird. With that in mind, BC band Blessed are tapping into some zen freakiness via the sniff-heavy video for their "Waving Hand."

Directed by Range of Nakasone Folk, the vid finds a group of landscapers feeling down on a ditch-digging job. To cope with their unhappiness, they take a break to whip off their shirts and "snedge." You'll have to watch the video to find out exactly what that means, but one of the figure's girlfriends doesn't seem particularly stoked about the newfound past time.

You can take a whiff of it all down below, where you'll also find info on Blessed's upcoming North American tour. "Waving Hand" comes from the band's self-titled 12-inch through Kingfisher Bluez/Coin Toss records. Pre-orders are expected shortly.
