Not gonna lie: We at Substream are downright obsessed with Basement‘s new album Promise Everything. (I mean, duh: We even put them on the cover of our 50th issue, available now.) One of the finest songs on Promise Everything is lead single “Aquasun,” and its music video—directed by Basement guitarist/vocalist Alex Henery and starring Basement guitarist Ronan Crix—has some really neat “how did they do that?” moments. We asked Henery to offer up some behind-the-scenes commentary on the “Aquasun” clip and he delivered. Check out this exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Basement’s “Aquasun” music video below, then scroll on down to see when the band will be in a city near you.
