Pyyramids, the musical project of Tim Nordwind (OK GO) and Drea Smith (He Say/She Say), recently released a few tracks as a preview to their forthcoming album Brightest Darkest Day. The full-length effort is set for release on April 9. Gearing up for the release, the pair recorded a few stripped-down acoustic videos of their tracks. The videos were actually shot in Nordwind’s living room.
“It was important for us that this feel intimate and personal,” said Nordwind of the acoustic video. “Shooting the whole thing in black and white helped to bring out the longing in the music. It was a nice reminder that every song should be able to translate onto just an acoustic guitar and still be enjoyable and moving to listen to.”
The acoustic videos were directed by Michelle Peerali, and Nordwind said that her involvement gave the videos an added intimacy.
“Michelle did a wonderful job of making us feel comfortable while capturing the subtle moments as we played this song about trying to desperately hold on to something or someone who maybe isn’t so good for you,” said Nordwind.
