The vibrantly colorful lyric video for “The Get Down” first premiered yesterday with Glide Magazine, who noted, “West offers a radio-friendly followed by pop-minded rock backbone that recalls both X Ambassadors and Walk the Moon” (9/12/18). Watch the video HERE.
The video was created by 351 Studios/Sky Entertainment, which has produced many lyric videos for artists including One Direction, Cash Cash, Armin van Buuren, Robert DeLong, Morgan Page, STS9, and Big Gigantic, along with previous EAST OF ELI videos. As West shared, “I got a little lucky getting the opportunity to work with such a high-profile production company…They are music lovers as well and fell in love with our unique sound that’s EOE. We decided to embark on this joint venture and haven’t stopped working together since.”
When asked about the lyrics and meaning behind “The Get Down,”Nathan, who co-wrote the song with Jordan Wright, said, “The song is all about the power of intimacy and connection between lovers. Today, more than ever, it seems all of our lives are overly saturated with an inbox full of ‘to do’s,’ both personally and work related. That being the case, it’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of our daily schedules that we undermine and forget how important it is to make a valid effort to connect on a physical level. Truth is, connecting on an intimate level is not only of the utmost importance but should always be a priority in a healthy relationship. This song was written based on moments for both [wife] Chyler and I, when out of the blue we’ve realized that ‘the stars have aligned’ schedule-wise giving us an opportunity to seize the moment and steal the time to be together.” West’s wife is actress Chyler Leigh (Supergirl, Grey’s Anatomy), who often performs with EAST OF ELI.
