What happens when two giant inflatables fall in love in New York City? Find out in the new Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness video for the piano rock band’s synthy pop track, “Fire Escape”.
Since debuting the AM Chalk influenced lyric video earlier this month, AMITW has released a hilarious montage of scenes from their summer tour with the lovey dovey bobbleheads.
In an interview with Billboard, Andrew explains: “On a late night in Los Angeles, Jon Morris — who was the co-director on the video — and I had this magical evening at the Ace Hotel where we invited a bunch of friends out, rented a suite, got our notebooks out, and had probably more fun than we should have. We just tried to brainstorm what would be the best party trick that you can bust out at a concert. We came up with getting these two wacky, wavy arm, inflatable dancers on stage with us. We brought them out on the [Weezer] tour and had them on stage with us for the whole summer. It seemed like it would be a fun experiment to try and find a way to not just include them in the video, but also show these personalities and create this love story between our little inflatable dancers.” That love story Andrew references transpires in restaurants, subways, bars, and music halls all throughout the brand new video.
Currently, Andrew McMahon is in the final week of recording the band’s sophomore LP, where “Fire Escape” is due to appear. On 11/11, he will perform at the annual Dear Jack Benefit Concert. Location TBA shortly.
