Seminal American rock band EELS today releases its new video for ‘Are We Alright’, taken from ’Earth To Dora’ (PIAS).
With creative and direction by Black Dog’s Greg Barnes, EELS ambitious new one-take video stars Jon Hamm as an EELS fan, finding solace in the new track as chaos unfolds around him. Shot in LA on 35mm, Greg and the Black Dog team directed and produced remotely from London.
“It was an incredible experience directing such a talented cast in LA - albeit overnight and remotely from Black Dog HQ in London - where our UK production team got all the pleasures of jet lag without the sun-tan,” said Greg. ”In essence it’s a video made by a fan, starring fans, and with lots of nods and winks for the fans and I’m hugely thankful to the cast crew and my Black Dog family on both sides of the pond.”
The video, which also features Love’s Mike Mitchell reprising his role from a previous EELS video, plays to the narrative of the feel-good hit of the feel-worst year.
Of the project EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett, a.k.a. E, says: “We could all use a little comfort from the past year. Perhaps this song can provide a little for you like it does for the guy in this video”.
