The Molochs have announced their new album ‘Flowers In The Spring’ is due out September 7th this year via Innovative Leisure. They have also shared the first single to be taken from it ‘I Wanna Say To You’ and today, a brilliant video to accompany it.
Speaking about the video, director Juan P Wauters explained, “In I Wanna Say To You I wanted to show The Molochs in their natural environment. Both Lucas and Ryan grew up in the Los Angeles area so I thought it would be good to make a video that showcases them and their city. I was aware of all the clichés related to the aesthetics of L.A. so I looked for an angle that allowed me to show their qualities without falling into redundancy. I thank the band and Innovative Leisure for giving me free rein in my creative process.”
Lucas Fitzsimons adds: “Juan is not only a good friend but also someone who Ryan and I admire as a creative person. He called me one day from New York and shared with me his ideas for the video. I loved them and it was easy to let him do his thing. I trusted him to do exactly what he said, which was to use Los Angeles as a setting in a way that wasn’t so obvious yet still felt classic. It also forced me to stretch my comfort zone a bit in terms of being so in front of the camera. We all worked hard and I’m proud of what came from it.“
The band will also be performing at The Hi-Hat in Los Angeles on August 3rd – more details on the show are available, here.
‘Flowers In The Spring’ will be released on the LA indie label Innovative Leisure.
