The band Poor Traits has just released their debut album ‘Minor Setbacks’, a collection of emotional, hard-driving indie rock numbers guided by front-woman Alex Badger. “Black and White” is a mid-tempo song that simmers along until it finally boils over in a burst of guitar at the end. The video depicts a man who wakes up on a beach, unable to remember how he got there. Disturbingly, you just know he’s done something very bad.
