For a Southern California-native, I really don’t explore this region enough. But, I have been to Joshua Tree, which is where a good majority of the video was filmed and the beach part was filmed at Santa Monica Pier, which is roughly a 20-minute bus ride from my university. Conceptually, I love that they chose to film at Joshua Tree because it is so desert-y out there and the video transitions to the beac, which goes along with the lyrics of “jumped into the water”. The video is pretty cinematic and the exhibition of these two areas of Southern California is absolutely gorgeous. The music video also has this fluidity to it that fits so perfectly with the song itself.

Need Your Light is set to release on February 19, 2016 via Barsuk Records.

I am not real...or at least not who you think I am, merely a figment of my own imagination. If you stumbled upon this blog...I can only wonder how.
