Philadelphia emo quartet Fire In The Radio had an interesting idea when preparing their new album, Telemetry. Instead of making traditional music videos, the band decided to create a series of webisodes that include new songs at the same time tell an overarching story. The band explain:
“Fire In The Radio has made a series of short video episodes that depict the dark comedic account of fictional character Donald C., a drummer who is struggling to find a more prominent role in his band (and in life). Each video is soundtracked by one of the songs off ‘Telemetry.’ When viewed together, the videos serve as a charming, Wes Anderson-style short film.”
You can watch the first installment of this series, titled “Crickets,” below.
If you dig the song featured in the video, it’s called “Luna, I’ll Be Home Soon” and can be streamed below.
Telemetry will be released on May 12 via Wednesday Records. If you’re in Canada, check out Fire In The Radio opening for Knapsack on the following shows:
