Nearly two weeks after dropping their colorful music video for “Hidden Colors,” Broadside has returned with a new music video for another new song of their impending sophomore record. On Friday (May 26), the Virginia-based band released their beach-inspired music video for “Paradise.” The three-minute clip opens with the band set up in what looks like a sound stage. The sound stage is set up to look like a beach with sand scattered all over the floor, a white screen showing projections behind the band’s instrumental set up, and the guys looking like the missing members of Grease‘s T-Birds with their white t-shirts, rolled up jeans, and black sunglasses.
As they begin to perform in the sand, they guys are soon assaulted by flying beach balls and fake seagulls that make direct bee-lines to them. Midway through the clip, the camera shift to the sand where Polaroids are scattered on the ground. The images begin to shift every couple of milliseconds showing different pictures. As it turns out, all the images showcased in the clip are courtesy of Broadside’s fans. The group asked their fan base to submit what their own vision of paradise looked like with their visions ending up in the final clip.
“Whatever adds value to your life, you need to chase it,” explains Broadside frontman Oliver Baxxter. “Life is a journey, and it should be documented and valued forever, so we wanted to give our fans an opportunity to share their version of paradise with us, and share their special moments in our music video. Thank you to everyone for letting us take a peek at your paradise.” Watch the music video for “Paradise” above.
“Paradise” will join previously released tracks “Puzzle Pieces” and “Hidden Colors” on Broadside’s upcoming album, Paradise. Paradise is set to be released on June 16 through Victory Records with pre-orders currently available here. In support of Paradise‘s release, Broadside is currently on tour with Real Friends, Have Mercy, Tiny Moving Parts, and Nothing, Nowhere. The spring tour will conclude on June 9 at the Concord Music Hall in Chicago. The remaining tour dates can be seen here.
