Unlocked: Watch Everyone Everywhere’s anti-music-video for “Queen Mary II”
When I reviewed their new self-titled full-length yesterday, I talked about the serious, sobering undertones of the latest batch of songs from Philly indie / emo four-piece Everyone Everywhere. But as fans of the band well know, these are four irreverent, ridiculous dudes when they’re onstage, on Facebook; pretty much everywhere outside of the lyrical world of their songs. The music video for “Queen Mary II” is a total blast to watch, so much that it’s easy to overlook that it barely features the actual song. Check it out below.
Everyone Everywhere shot that video at PhilaMOCA, which was also the site of the full-album-in-real-time clip they released yesterday. If you missed it, you can check it out again below. Worth noting: the video hasn’t even been up for 24 hours and it already has close to 900 views. Which may not seem like a lot, but then consider that it’s almost 40 minutes long.
Everyone Everywhere (2012) is the featured album in this edition of Unlocked; hear the spotlighted single “Queen Mary II” in Monday’s post, read yesterday’s album review; and check back tomorrow for an interview with the band and Friday for their Spotify playlist.
