Jared Boulanger, the singer/guitarist of Austin band the Sour Notes, recently told us how much he loves the movies of Ingmar Bergman, Jean-Luc Godard, Frederico Fellini, and other film directors. He actually went to school to be a screenwriter, but decided to be in a rock 'n' roll band instead.
His love for movies and screenwriting, however, comes across loud and clear in the Sour Notes' playful new video for 'In The Meanwhile,' the second single from the band's upcoming album, 'Do What May.' The video was shot in Austin, by Paul Avellino, and shows several friends of the band getting slammed in the face with flying food.
“It just sorta happened after a few daytime beers were opened,” says Boulanger about the video. “It was shot on a super-high speed camera that was able to capture the intricacies of various facial expressions. We even fired off an air horn to unexpectedly startle people -- all friends of ours willing to be demoralized and have food thrown at them. But who doesn't want to throw food at someone's face at least once?”
On July 27, the Sour Notes play a Red Bull Sound Select show in Austin with Gentleman Rogues, Theophilus London, and the Dandy Warhols. Warning: Don't let the Sour Notes get their hands on any food, or else...
