"The 'Tongue Tied' video is our third music video so far and our third video with our friend, L.A. filmmaker, Jordan Bahat," bassist Sean Gadd tells Spinner. "This video was our first to shoot outside of California. Out of the sunshine of L.A. and into the rain and fog of London town, the irony being that the band had never worked in an environment this hot before. It was the hottest day of the year, we had no air conditioning and had to be constantly jumping around in a blacked-out house, which more looked like an ex-Victorian London pub, while under lighting that certainly did not cool us down. Hopefully you can see the pain and suffering we went through to make this video, and you might even see what a blast we were having."
Reminiscent of Coldplay's 'The Scientist' video (but a whole lot cooler) we follow a partygoer through a mad-house, backward environ with the screen bursting into 3-D at any given moment, accenting the band's anthemic pop chorus.
"Everyone at the party is people that support the band, so it was very special for us to have them there and in our video. The leading man in the video who's having a bad trip was handpicked by Grouplove and Jordan after holding auditions in the UK's capital city, and we turned out to be very happy with our choice," Gadd continues.
Grouplove's 'Never Trust a Happy Song' drops Sept. 13 via Canvasback Music/Atlantic. Check out the video for 'Tongue Tied' below.
