Arctic Monkeys collaborators direct new Beach Boys video – watch
Focus Creeps are behind the promo clip for 'That's Why God Made The Radio'
Focus Creeps, the music video production duo behind all of the Arctic Monkeys' 'Suck It And See' videos, have produced the video for The Beach Boys' comeback single, 'That's Why God Made The Radio'.
Scroll down to watch the video, made by Aaron Brown and Ben Chappell, who were named the world's Hottest Directors in NME's recent Hot List issue. Speaking to NME about the casting and treatment for the video, Brown said:
It's a lot of kids of various eras that the music has influenced, like '50s greasers, '60s outlaw biker guys and '70s surfer hippies. Then they all go to this party and open the garage door and The Beach Boys are setting up.
The Beach Boys, who now consist of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks, released their 29th studio album, also called 'That's Why God Made The Radio' earlier this month. 'That's Why God Made The Radio' is the first album to feature all of the band's surviving original members since 1963, and has been produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love.
The Beach Boys play a one-off UK show at London's Wembley Arena on September 28, as part of a full European tour.
The Beach Boys formed in 1961 and enjoyed huge success throughout the following decades. Wilson last performed with The Beach Boys during the making of their 1996 album 'Stars And Stripes Vol 1', and has toured as a solo artist since. Two former founding members, Dennis and Carl Wilson, died in 1983 and 1998 respectively.
