L.A. natives Bad Suns stay true to their hometown with their latest video, a tribute to the city’s iconic Venice Beach. The alt-rock quartet brought single “We Move Like The Ocean,” well, to the ocean, capturing a beach-y aesthetic that matches the surf-rock inflected tune. Watch the exclusive premiere below.
“A friend of ours got his hands on some old footage taken in Venice Beach, Calif. on Super 8 Film,” vocalist Christo Bowman tells Billboard. “We had the camera, and we went and shot some footage of a modern day Venice and then spliced it together with the old film.”
Capturing the idiosyncratic stretch of coastline through a retro lens resulted in “an interesting juxtaposition of two eras,” Bowman continued, “and a perfectly healthy amount of shirtless men.”
