Nada Surf "Rushing" Video Credits
Written and Directed By Emilie & Sarah Barbault
Meeting that special someone can be tough, but in Nada Surf's new music video for "Rushing," they show that all it can take is a friendly smile. Watch the clip above, via YouTube.
Singer Matthew Caws shared with Stereogum some insight about the video:
I’ve known Sarah and Emilie Barbault for a long time. I did the music for two short films of theirs, A Day of Lucidity and Pleurer Des Larmes D’enfance. They shot the video for the minor alps song "Waiting For You." We’d wanted to make another video together for a long time. The song is about the transporting feeling of new love. I wrote it with Dan Wilson. We were writing together to see what it would be like, not for Nada Surf necessarily. It was a really wonderful experience. He has such a great musical and lyrical mind. I was originally hoping that this song would be sung by a woman because while there is (more and more) pressure on men to be attractive, there is still clearly more on women, and this song touches on body-consciousness in the chorus, how the right person can make you forget issues of appearance, and more holistically can pull your mind up out of your body and into a plane of one-ness, of spirit. There’s a line about watching the human river go by, when you’re not participating or can’t find your way in.
We had a great day taking the subway all over Paris and shooting wherever felt good. It was fun to play for the commuters but i’m sure they were wondering why I wasn’t singing a famous song.
Last month, the band shared a music video for another new track, "Cold To See Clear."
You Know Who You Are was released on March 4, 2016 via Barsuk Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
