LA indie pop/rock band Flights Over Phoenix released their debut music video for their infectious track “Middle Of The World” not too long ago and its been on loop ever since we got our hands on it.
“‘Middle Of The World’ is a song that explores the feelings of isolation through imagery that one might experience in a dream of that nature,” the band explains. “In writing the song, we wanted it to feel like a journey, and so we wanted the music to be up-tempo and have a lot of movement.”
For the music video, the three-piece traveled to Soggy Dry Lake in the California desert alongside directors Eric McCoy and Justus Meyer who are responsible for more than 100 commercials, short films, and music videos.
“It was great working on the video with Eric and Justus. We wanted the video to touch on the feelings of isolation within the lyrics but to have a positive undertone of exploration and hope. They really struck a great balance and we love how it came out. Their whole crew was very professional and it was an absolute pleasure working with them,” the band says.
For those of you who haven’t heard of Flights Over Phoenix, the band first landed on the music scene with the 2015 release of their single “Runaway California,” which has over 125,000 spins on Spotify. Their debut EP Where I Comedown was just released in March 2017; check out a behind-the-scenes video of the band’s recording process here. The band released a lyric video for the track “Deadstill” and “Middle Of The World” marks their first music video.
