“The ‘Nowhere Now’ music video came together by a thread of luck and a whole lot of madness. The shoot was originally scheduled months prior to the actual day of shooting. But due to inclement weather nearly every weekend of last spring into the summer, we were forced to reschedule time and time again. The night before the shoot, we checked the weather and the rain was supposed to hold until about 8pm. We gave everyone the green light. And then, something else went wrong. One of our main actress’ had a pet become gravely ill. She had no choice but to bail.

Everyone began to plan for another date. Determined to make something work, I told the cast and crew to meet at the time planned. I called my trusted DP Matt Bastos and told him about some ideas floating around in my head. He urged me to somehow include my Canon 514XL Super 8 into the story. I spent the next six hours writing the screenplay for what would become the official music video for ‘Nowhere Now’.” – Ryan Sloan, vocalist for Wyland

Who: We’ve had serious love for Small Talks since they came onto the scene. Now on the day before their debut album release, we’re hitting replay on their latest single + waiting for midnight.

What: The band’s third single “Teeth” has a sweet pop melody you won’t soon forget.

Why: “Teeth” creates a cloud of nostalgia, surrounding you as you fall into memories of days gone by.

“Teeth is the closure I never got after losing someone I loved for the first time… It’s about a type of love that separates you from reality and when it’s over you’re left feeling like you’ve waken from a strange dream. You can’t recognize that there is more for you beyond them in that moment of loss.” – Cayley Spivey, vocalist and guitarist for Small Talks
