Premiere: The West – It was Disco and it’s Over [Music-Video]

The West have been a band that has been featured here before, namely with their album “In Low Light“, which was and still is a great album. Now, it’s gone a lot of time, and they’ve been readying up a music-video for the song “It was Disco and it’s Over“, which seems to be a flirt with the late 70’s disco-era that ended pretty quickly. Not that weird, considering that they have a disco influence within their music. Anyway, the video for this mellowed out song was shot on location in Seattle and Bellingham, by All Mod Cons and Hand Crank Films. It was directed by Jordan Albertsen, and choreographed by Gabrielle Schutz. Below, band member Anthony Darnell shares his own thoughts related to both the video itself and other things:

We couldn’t have made it happen without the support of local dancers and all the others who donated their time, cars, and un-burnt skin to the making of this video. We’re also indebted to Everyday Music, Melrose Vinyl Market, Oddfellows, Super Mario’s, and many more businesses for lending their scenic locales to us. The West has an upcoming show at Columbia City Theatre on Sat. Aug. 10th w/ Nude Pop and Yevtushenko. In late August, we’ll be going on tour to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vegas, Phoenix, Missoula, and more.
