Four months after Eight Belles‘ fabulous debut, Girls Underground, made my 2012 year-end best of list here at Popdose, the band’s first ever video is officially unveiled tonight during a live performance here in San Francisco.

Filmed last year during band leader Jessi Phillips’ annual summer trek back to her home state of Michigan, the video for “Buried Child” revels in the natural beauty and serene rural images that colored Phillips’ childhood days. It also features a horse. If it didn’t, we’d be very worried.

“Buried Child” was directed by Christine Hucal, the same young phenom responsible for Ash Reiter’s hilarious video for “I’ve Got Something I Can Laugh About.”

Eight Belles will unveil the “Buried Child” video before a live audience tonight when they perform at Amnesia, 853 Valencia Street, San Francisco. B. Hamilton and Joel Robinow also perform. Show starts at 9:00 PM, cover is $7-$10 sliding scale. Presented by the Seaweed Sway.
