We've been busy the last couple months! We have 2 singles out now (kaleidoscope and melody), and some pretty cool music videos to go along with them. We're showing you both of the videos here, in case you missed them :) Tristen Martino directed both of these - go check him out. And read on for some fun bts!
The first one: kaleidoscope.
This was a loooong day of filming. Basically, 250 flowers that we needed to throw at Caleb and Ella over and over and over. Plus, a few tedious hours of thumb tacking cotton clouds to the ceiling. We started at 8:00am and worked until 1:00 in the morning, with a couple short breaks for Chipotle and Little Caesars (meal of champions).
We really had such a blast with this video. The excitement of releasing our first single carried us through the day and made this project unbelievably fun. Plus, who doesn't have fun making it rain flowers?
The second one: melody.
We somehow pulled this video together in about a week – one very late night of building the set, a few nights exploring the streets of Orange County to get those precious nighttime shots, and another full day with the band and all the, *ahem*, water. Tristen (our director) even built an entire storefront set in his apartment so we could do a lot of the filming on our own time.
Lots of people have been asking if the instruments are okay. The answer is no...mostly. The bass and drums survived. The rest were old instruments that we haven't touched in years, and the piano was headed for the dump until we found it on Craigslist. As much as possible, we tried not to ruin perfectly good instruments :)
We hope these songs/videos make you smile, laugh, and think :) We're proud of them, and had way too much fun making them.
Here's to many more projects to come.
