Noiseheads,
The TVD First Date and Video Premiere, “Wait”

“We love making music videos. Doesn’t matter if it’s a big production or small budget, high-level concept, or run-and-gun—making videos is the one aspect of being in a band that we enjoy most and we’ve been fortunate enough to make all kinds.”

“The video for “Wait.” was shot over 24 hours and pays homage to every music video we’ve created thus far. The tone of it matches much of the imagery surrounding the album artwork and photographs taken for it… retro and alien.

The original cut of the video is in 4:3, the standard format in the pre-HDTV world, intentionally calling to the Sitcoms part of the album title. We shot in 30fps, high-speed, and time-lapse. The 360° version features a wall of TVs programmed to the music in Matrix-like fashion, composed of raw footage from the shoot as well as actual images from previous music videos hidden throughout.

My parents have quite the record collection, so I was exposed to vinyl at a very early age. The first time I actually recall sitting down to listen to one was when I was about 11; it was Michael Jackson’s Bad. I took it out of the sleeve and placed it on the player, and I’ll always remember that moment when I first realized you could hear the music coming from the needle itself. I grew up when cassettes and CDs were at the top of their game and vinyl had yet to make its comeback, so listening to one was a very different experience for me.

Having our new album, Sitcoms for Aliens, on vinyl was important to me, not because of the medium’s current popularity but because of the connection I made when I first listened to my parents’ record collection. I made sure they were the first people to receive a copy of it and, needless to say, listening to your own album on the record player you spent your childhood with was an experience I’ll never forget.”
