Friday Pilots Club’s new video for their song “Would You Mind”, directed by Jon Levert, is packed full of simplicity, if that concept ever struck your interest. (It did ours!) The band is bringing gloomy, dark, and sultry undertones to modern rock and redefining the genre where most strive to become someone else. Their new visual appeal takes a turn for the better, as the song is interpretive, yet not too busy, and the video is as well. The video takes the audience through a situation of somewhat ironic revenge in a relationship full of secrets and misuse, detailing the opening of darker doors in the concept of love and trust. The actors had to perform the scene in just about two minutes, in order to correctly slow down the video to the four minute song. It’s quite attention grabbing. The elements of surprise and confusion play in during the middle and end, as the plot takes a turn for the evil in finding out darker secrets in the relationship. The song radiates power and confidence in such a darkened time for music. Perhaps it represents what all of us feel on a wider scale; lost, somewhat confused, yet finding out more and more about ourselves and the people around us on a day to day basis.
