Chicago based quartet, Little Church, recently released a new EP titled, It’s Not You via Diversion Records. This 5 track EP merges rock, soul, layered psychedelia and melody into their own unique form of art-pop.
Today we have the pleasure of premiering the video for the track, ‘Outside’. When asked about the track and video, lead vocalist and guitarist for the band, Chelsea Foss-Ralston wrote,
” ‘Outside’ is about the idea of one’s relationship to drugs and death and using them as a way of escaping reality. A literal and figurative storm in which a person cannot escape. The idea that If I’m going to die in this world or a different one, I want to be in the open air. I don’t want to feel trapped in the city- I need to be “Outside”.
Pre-production for the video started back in the fall of 2018 with cinematographer Joey Delisi and me. Joey and I initially met back in 2014 through some mutual friends in the DIY scene here in Chicago. I had the initial concept for the video and wanted to try directing for the first time, aside from a directing class I took in college as a performance major. Thinking about who I wanted to work with, Joey was the first person who came to mind. The two of us worked together for a couple of months storyboarding until we were able to shoot in late February. The concept of ‘Outside’ is “Alice in Wonderland- meets clock-work orange warehouse party-acid trip that’s gone bad.”
