L.A. TAKEDOWN SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR “BAD NIGHT AT BLACK’S BEACH”

Today, L.A. Takedown shares their new song and video, “Bad Night at Black’s Beach,” off their forthcoming album, II (as in the Roman numeral for 2), out 5/12 on Domino. The band is becoming known for their highly stylized videos (like the psychedelic desert journey of “Night Skiing” that premiered with NPR Music last month), and “Bad Night” is no exception. The video very quickly shifts in mood from 2 Fast 2 Furious to Too Cute. Here’s what director Matt Hewitt had to say about the video:
 
Aaron and I had spoken about emulating the credit sequence from Flight of the Navigator for years. Dogs catching frisbees in slow motion! Of course, the filming turned out to be challenging. It definitely gave me a newfound respect for any dog that could pull off an aerial catch, and a deeper respect for our director of photography/camera operator, David Feeney-Mosier.
