Local Natives have shared their video for "Ceilings," comprised entirely of footage shot from their cell phones. It's the digital age -- deal with it-- and it's also a creative way to approach the music video medium.
"This video was recorded between bus calls and soundchecks, truck stops and stage times over the last couple of months on tour, mostly in Europe," the band's Tyler Rice said. "Whether shot in decades-closed German car factories, places of legendary Spanish architecture, or on bikes in Amsterdam, it was filmed on our phones in the cracks between shows which make up 97% of our lives as touring musicians. The themes of surrealism in 'Ceilings' work with the patchwork of days cultures and memories that stream by in a blur on a summer festival run. hope you enjoy the glimpse, most of which has already washed through."
Enjoy the fruits of their travel labor below. We love band that doesn't waste time on the road, but makes something worthwhile out of it.
