Julien-k recently premiered the music video for their latest single “Nights of Future Past”. What I love about all the Julien-k music videos from We’re Here With You is their ability to paint a portrait, take the viewer to a different place, and let the music drive the story that’s taking place in the video. Here’s what Ryan Shuck, lead singer of the band, had to say about the video:
This video was shot in Russia by our incredibly talented director and creative partner, Katya Tsyagonova (Katya also directed the video for Breakfast in Berlin).
We had been tossing around ideas for the NOFP video for months – going back and forth with Katya. We had some cool ideas, and at some point in the process, Katya simply said “ok — I have some ideas too! I’m going to just do this!”
We’re glad she did. You may notice Katya actually makes a few cameos in the video (we love that kind of shit).
As our fans can see, we meant it when we said we were going to independently create a serious collection of high quality videos to flesh out Were Here With You — to give the record as much color and energy as possible. We believe this record is a serious work, and we are committed to continuing to let the record breathe and grow — and thank you all — it HAS been growing! We actually have major music channels starting to play nearly ALL of our videos (IM1, MTVU, and MTV Latin to name a few).
We approached this record and our new business (Julien-K INC and Circuit Freq Records) in a very unique way. Our Intent was to build a “creative collective” of talented individuals that could work with us all over the world and at home using technology to collaborate and relying on our worldwide touring to actually connect in person when possible in an effort to grow and enhance our carefully curated artist collective.
We want to thank all of our amazing friends and partners around the world that have worked with us in creating all this amazing content and music for WHWY, and we want to thank our fans for continuing to support our effort and slowly grow our little project into something special.
We hope you all had an amazing New Year — I’m sure many of you experienced a “Nights of Future Past moment” on NYE — looking forward to seeing you all in 2013!
