Watch the new Surprises "Tell The World" Music Video at PopMatters! 1 May 2019
The long-awaited new album from Surprises' Natural Disaster comes out everywhere on May 31st and we're excited to unveil the new music video for "Tell The World" today at PopMatters. Entirely self-produced, filmed and edited by Brooks Pascahl, the video is a testament to the DIY spirit of the album.
Of the video
Paschal says, "This was the first music video I made and it came after a few
failed ideas I had trying to make a video for another song. Doing it
myself, I knew that I had to master the basics of filming and editing. I
wanted to make a video that captured the performances but I didn't want
to get 'Brooks' fatigue. So the idea was simple, different colors for
different performances and back light all of the 'members' except for me
singing. That created the shadow effect. After I had the shots, it was
just a matter of editing it in a way that kept it interesting. My main
goal with the video was to capture the energy of the performance without
distracting from the message of the song."
Natural Disaster is available for pre-order now on limited edition vinyl at the Spartan store and all pre-orders include an instant high-quality download of two songs + exclusive bonus track "Natural Disaster" (A Capella)" on May
