It’s finally here! The debut music video from listenlisten’s debut full length [Hymns From Rhodesia] comes the second single [after "Safe Home, Safe Home In Port!"], “On The Water.” Shot on location in beautiful west Texas, listenlisten take the look of an old spaghetti western with the feel of a classic Twilight Zone episode to tell of story of nature and survival. Take a walk with three strangers (none of who are band members) into the lonely desert and discover how the dehydrated soul fights to stay alive.
Here’s a word from director Bryan Forrester:
“The first time I saw/heard Listen!Listen! I knew their music would fit my directing style. I instantly wanted to work with them. Ben and I talked after the show and then a year went by….
I was just off of a project and I was looking for new one when I got a call from Ben about shooting a video for their upcoming album. I got an advanced copy and fell in love with it! The original concept for On the Water was ultimately told to me as “we want a guy who gets stabbed with a maple tap and water comes out. Make it subtle, timeless, an violent.” maybe not an exact quote, but it was the original concept in a nutshell. I had my friend, poster artist Anville sketch out my storyboards, I threw together an animatic and the band gave their ok. The whole preproduction process took about a month, which is very fast for me. We rented a house about 20 min from the Mexican border and shot the video in 3 days! The whole process was amazing and I really look forward to working with Listen!Listen! for a while to come.”
