It’s a great video for a great song performed by my current favorite band, Saint Motel! The video was directed by A/J Jackson, who is also the lead singer. (I nearly called him the “adorable lead singer” but, to be honest, the entire band is pretty damn adorable.) Saint Motel has always been as much about the visual arts as it’s been about the music. I saw Saint Motel live just a few weeks ago and seriously, they’re great. It was a fun show and if you ever get a chance to see them, take it!
I should also note that this song was apparently inspired by a night that the band spent in the town of Van Horn, Texas. I’ve actually been to Van Horn and this video does a pretty good job of capturing the place. I get the feeling that I may like the town a little bit more than the members of Saint Motel but no matter. It’s a good song and a good video and the dog is cute.
