Have you ever seen a music video with color changing shoes? A commercial even? Has there been a creative video involving shoe culture that gave us any real impact that could be remembered? If so, then there's no need to check out the video by Blunt Headed, simply titled 'Left.'
So what is it? How is it done? And most importantly, Who are these guys?
The music video Left showcases Portland from Street Level - Literally, featuring one of Blunt Headed's new songs off their latest Album, 'The Twin's Mixtape.' The album itself features great guitar melodies which may not be heard as much on their previous albums Chapters 10,11,12, and 13. This video is surprisingly different in comparison to Blunt Headed's previous videos that were 100% 3D Computer Animations done completely in-house at the hands of Ryan May.
"This video, Left, was still difficult to plan and make happen, but was a lot quicker to produce," states Ryan May. "Where as the Music Video 'Drop' took over 1 year to make, almost Frame by Frame if you will. 'Left" was more about pre-production and actually hitting the pavement and planning out my strategy and the best times to film."
The live performance resembles something out of a movie, where duality and opposites attracting being as important as identical people, seeking out their own identities and personal sound. "It's hard being a twin." Kevin says, "Slipknot had this way of talking about being brothers themselves, and being cooped up on a bus and touring and just had to find a way to make it work for the band and most importantly the music. I'd like to think we've shown them something too. Maybe that the fact that we're twins, and we still fight and disagree as if we were performing at the Forum tonight," Kevin laughs. "No matter if you had 9 guys that were all identical, there's no escape from "band friction."
