[Watch] Manchester Orchestra - "Virgin" (Video)
After being nominated for two VMA's in regards to their great video for "Simple Math" Manchester Orchestra return with more visuals for their track, "Virgin". It was the opening track on their latest and most ambitious album to date, Simple Math. This video however is a little different as it was handed to them randomly on the street in New York by a Student. The band said:
"We were skeptical to say the least, but the more he talked about it, the more we were interested in actually seeing this thing...He pulled his laptop out and placed it on the steps to the bus. We were blown away. We put him in touch with our manager and for the last few months he’s been putting the finishing touches to this incredible piece. This is that rare moment when art expands further than first intentions or expectations. Where two different inspirations can coincide to create something better. We proudly present to you: ‘Virgin’, directed by Ben Disinger.”
So, if you're a video maker, director or whatever, maybe you should approach your favourite bands in the streets more often and instead of asking for a photo be pro-active and make them a kick ass video like this? It synchs up incredibly well and major props to Ben Disinger for the work he put into it.
