Following this spring’s release of their debut How Do You Feel? EP and a recent run of shows with The Killers, Joywave are back today to share the video for their song “Tongues,” which was premiered online yesterday via SPIN Magazine and on TV last night via REVOLT. Directed by acclaimed directing duo The Daniels (DJ Snake + Lil Jon, Passion Pit, Foster The People), the video finds the band making their acting debut as they attempt to clothe a mass of free-loving nudists.
Speaking about the video’s inspiration, The Daniels said, “We wanted to take the trend of putting ‘naked chicks’ in music videos then turn that into the silliest most unexpected thing possible. The idea made us and the band laugh…we hope other people laugh too.” The concept was perfect for the band, as well, as the idea put forth by The Daniels realized their desire to “satirize the past five years of videos for ‘indie pop summer smashes’ – the videos where a bunch of suburban kids put facepaint and feathers on and run around in nature acting free-spirited for the afternoon. It’s poking fun at this cliched concept, and in a really, really absurd way.”
