video premiere: indie r&b rockers lowercase letters’ ‘open blinds’
By Sound Check
November 12, 2014
Today we’re premiering indie R&B rockers Lowercase Letters’ new video, ‘Open Blinds’.
‘Open Blinds’ started with us listening to records while snowed-in a few winters back. Once we heard that loop from Boz Scaggs “Lowdown,” we started building the structure and making it a song. It’s the only song on the album that uses a sample and was recorded in the same condo.”
Band member Clinton adds: “We figured we’d shoot a video that explicitly went along with the lyrics, but we weren’t exactly sure how. Then it hit us: Hitchcock, Rear Window. We also went ahead and watched the Hitchcock-inspired Disturbia. We thought we’d try to strike some kind of balance between the two, and put our own lighthearted twist on the unsavory character, which is played by Alphie.”
Lowercase Letters’ album will be released on November 17.
Video directed by Simon Kim.
