Trendsetter is so excited to be working with Minnesota based band Tiny Moving Parts on the release of their latest video, “For the Sake of Brevity.”
The video portrays lead singer David Mattheisen’s emotional journey through Antarctica, as he passes by countless arctic fisherman on a thin sheet of ice, alone with just his guitar. Directed by Brendan Lauer, this emotional scene is followed up by an intense performance by the three-piece punk rockers in a secluded garage of sorts.
The track comes off of TMP’s new two-song single, “For the Sake of Brevity” / “Fish Bowl,” out now on Triple Crown Records. Listen here. The single follows the band’s fourth full-length record, Swell, released last year.

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” That well-known quote, often attributed to Dr Seuss, could also be the mantra that Tiny Moving Parts live by. It’s certainly a philosophy that the trio – who hail from the incredibly small town of Benson, Minnesota and were formed in 2008 by brothers Matt and Billy Chevalier (bass and drums, respectively) and their cousin Dylan (vocals/guitar) – applied while making their fourth full-length record, Swell. For while it’s an album that’s full of absence – lost love, lost friends, lost time – it looks for the positives. Instead of dwelling on those empty spaces, Swell instead recalls what was once in their place.
“The album is about trying to be the best person you can be,” explains vocalist/guitarist Dylan Mattheisen, “and being as happy as you can in the world we live in. That’s been kind of the overall theme of our band – just trying to find the positive in shitty situations and keeping your head up.”
