TAMPA, FL — Glove (www.glovetheband.com), which released its debut album “Boom Nights” in 2022, just self-directed a music video for their single “Chewing on a Wire.” The band is comprised of Rod Wendt, Brie Deux and Justin Burns, and brings a new-aged sound to British ’80s synth pop, hinting to listeners what music might sound like in the future.
The video is a mix of artistic visuals and performance footage. Spilled paint, twisted chains and sparse floral arrangements are intercut with imagery of the band playing in front of an industrial building — a pure blue sky overhead. The track’s keyboard sequences are layered with blocky “Chewing on a Wire” motion graphics.
“Each prop scene was shot in realtime and slow motion,” explains Glove’s Rod Wendt. “Kyle O’Brien from Motion Minds shot on a Blackmagic (Pocket Cinema Camera) 6K Pro using Sigma lenses, and live, outdoor shots were shot with a Pocket 4K on a gimbal DJI Ronin S3.”
Color grading was performed using Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve, working with LUTs made by The Brim. Oscar Perez handled the lighting using Aperture Lights.
“I edited the video in Premiere Pro and did all the text effects in After Effects,” Wendt adds.
