Pretty Little Empire Releases Video for “All I Know”
February 3, 2012
We live in an age dominated by one-take shoots, where everyone and their baby sister has access to digital SLRs and #feelings. So St. Louis music fans should be pleasantly surprised by this slick new music video, which is Pretty Little Empire‘s second in as many years. Both were directed by Justin Hayward. “All I Know” was recorded at R&R Music Labs.
Those who know singer and songwriter Justin Johnson (a movie buff, lover of film, and documentary director in his own right) shouldn’t be surprised that PLE has spent so much time, energy, and resources on the creation of their music videos. Awash in black and white and shot with intentional choppiness, the “All I Know” video might be the closest one can get to understanding what a Pretty Little Empire show is really like (my comment is directed, of course, at the dozen or so St. Louisans who’ve yet to see them play live).
As far as updates go, PLE has been recording at Native Sound (preview a new one, “Gold on the Radio”, on RFT Music) and laying a bit low as drummer Evan O’Neal has been recovering from ACL surgery. Expect to see their faces out in public as a band again real soon.
