In June 2011, I excitedly told you about the Pittsburgh band 1,2,3. I raved about their sound, gave them a thumbs up and even boldly predicted that they would be one of the breakout bands of 2011. I thought it was a sure thing, but for some reason that prediction didn't come true and it still boggles my mind to this day. Are my ears deceiving me? I'm I trying to make them something they're not? They have the sound and look that is "in" right now, so I'm hoping my glimpse into the future was simply just a year too soon. Okay enough about my lack of Nostradamusian (yes new word) skills, let's get to the video.
Today's MVM, "Scared But Not That Scared", is from the duo's 2011 album New Heaven. It's a twisted, trippy and slightly creepy video that shows just how far some people will go for their beliefs. Everyone wants to feel like they're part of something and history has proven that with the Manson Family, Jim Jones, Heaven's Gate and The Branch Davidians. This is 1,2,3's take on the subject. Kids don't try this at home. Just enjoy the video, your Monday and remember to live your soundtrack out loud.
I understand there has been some trouble with the video playing. If it continues to happen, here the link:http://vimeo.com/41862503
P.S. Because you were probably emotionally devastated last week with no video, I offer an olive branch in the form of two bonus videos from 1,2,3. First, a live version of "Confetti" and the second, a live version of "Riding Coach".
