Watch the cellphone-shot video for this hazy, shoegaze take on the immortal song made famous by The Flamingos.
We're premiering ohnomoon's video for "I Only Have Eyes for you," from Eyes, Mouth, Ashes, self-releasing on June 16.
The video marks an increasing trend we've noticed with creative and enterprising bands, and that's shooting video content on their smartphones. Huzzah. We live in the millennial age, so we must deal with it. It's so refreshing when a band is able to thread a social (media) phenom into a creative pursuit.
Guitar player Corey Oliver said, "We recently put out our first EP, VVV, and for each of our music videos (also firsts!) we've been experimenting with making the most out of limited resources and budget. This video was really fun because we were able to take our time and not worry about equipment, enlisting our friends and family for help gathering footage, shot entirely on smartphones. So there's snow and desert, beaches and cities, house parties and crowded avenues, strangers and loved ones. That said, had I known how time consuming it was going to be blurring out hundreds of faces I might have taken a different approach."
You'll know this song via the hit 1959 rendition by The Flamingos. Now enjoy a modern take.
ohnomoon has an upcoming show at Brooklyn's The Bell House on June 16.
