Watch the new Surprises "Natural Disaster" Music Video at Substream! 9 April 2019
Surprises has just dropped a music video for the new single and title track off the just-announced new album Natural Disaster which comes out everywhere on May 31st. Watch the premiere at Substream here!
An impressively DIY effort, Paschal explains,
"Shooting a music video
myself was not in the plans, but I had a scheduling conflict with the
guy that was gonna shoot the video for this song and I just sat on it
for a while. I had a week open in my schedule and the gears started
turning. I took a stab at making a video for another song called "Tell
The World" and that kinda got me going. Two days later I shot a video
for another song and by the time I got to "Natural Disaster" I was ready
to try some crazy shit. The idea popped in my head and I went to attic
to find some old TVs. The challenge with the video was that I knew that I
couldn't sync four TVs at once. So I shot them individually, then used a
3 dollar phone app to splice the 4 shots together. It looked amazing,
but the app wouldn’t render HD so I had a good buddy of mine (Wes
Marvin) splice it on real editing software. That was really the 4 shots I
had to work with. While I was editing it, I tried to make my
limitations the thing that made it clever, so I decided to use the big
text for the choruses. I figured those were good words to smack you in
the face with."
