The Men premiere their first ever music video – watch
New York rockers track 'I Saw Her Face' features on their most recent album 'New Moon'
The Men have unveiled their first ever music video for the track 'I Saw Her Face' – watch it above.
Speaking about the video, singer Mark Perro told NME via email: "We were trying to make a video like Earth, Wind and Fire's 'Lets Groove Tonight'". Drummer Rich Samis added: "This was shot in December 2012 at our friend Alexander Perrelli's apartment. All video effects were generated through the use of commercial grade video mixers and enhancers. The raw video footage was shot entirely on VHS cameras. Our friend Brian Chillemi was nice enough to help us out in the painstaking process of editing this video. Brian and our buddy ZZ Ramirez helped out with the camera work. Nick's [Chiericozzi – guitarist] guitar is actually on fire on some shots. We like it."
The track is taken from the Brooklyn quintet's fourth album 'New Moon', which was released earlier this month (March 5). The band will play London's Garage tonight (March 19) along with fellow NYC rockers Parquet Courts.
The Men released their debut LP 'Immaculada' in 2010, which was followed by 'Leave Home' in 2011 and the critically acclaimed 'Open Your Heart' in 2012. Read NME's verdict on 'New Moon' here.
