Video of the Week: “Close Enough”, from the War Poets

War Poets is a Minneapolis, Minnesota band whose album doesn’t come out until October, but they just released a very interesting video for the song “Close Enough.” The clip features two couples in the kind of everyday settings one might find themselves in during those days leading up to getting married; the catch is that the couples are both same-sex relationships. Depending on your opinions on the political and religious debate surrounding the issue of marriage equality, this might be an unsettling thing to witness, but my guess is that it’s pretty close to normal for many same-sex couples–or at least it would be close if the scenes at the end of the video were legal in more than a few states.

Oh, and the song itself, cowritten with producer Kevin Bowe, is a decent mid-tempo rootsy rocker with a universal message of its own.
