How Hey, King! Find Themselves In Their Music Videos

Tony Ray Baker
So I got two questions around that. So is beautiful, then, the story of you two? Because it feels like it…

Taylor Plecity
Every music video that we’ve had the amazing opportunity to produce, create ,direct and edit. Editing is not my favorite, but Natalie’s amazing at that. Um, we tried to like really fit ourselves into either if it’s like “Sorry” with the old couple, we were trying to be like, okay, so this is “you’re representing me, you’re representing Natalie and like play”.

Natalie London
Yeah, “Half Alive”. It was like, the first real music video we put out from the album and that, that has, I mean, they’re all parts of us, for sure. It’s impossible that like our relationship is separate from the band at this point.

Taylor Plecity
But with “Beautiful”, it was really interesting because we had like the road trip idea, but we didn’t know how to really make a through line narrative to connect it. And then I was just kind of, like, well, you used to be the mascot at Red, Robin, and I used to do Princess Parties. When I was like a teenager, and that was like, both of our first, like gigs for money was, I did like princess parties and she was a mascot and so…

Taylor Plecity
But yeah and then so it was just kind of like let’s incorporate every aspect that we can into this and like kind of tell like a through line. So that’s why in the beginning I’m getting my hair pulled out by one of our good friends daughters and and she’s just, you know, fed up smoking a cigarette, kicking the mascot head. And then that propels us to grab our dogs and go on this road trip…

Natalie London
to find each other.

Tony Ray Baker
Yeah, I think what was for me was that when I watched it and I listen to those words, I think that so many of us can relate to that exact situation that, you know, as we go through time, that it seems to occur. And there’s that person who’s very far away and you just can’t let go of them. Every thought is of them, and you just want anything to do just to get with them and in driving across the state to do that is not an obstacle.

Tony Ray Baker
And I kind of felt like, oh my God. I remember when I was in my 20s, I had that scenario play out and I used to drive to California every weekend to the detriment of my job and everything. Because I just wanted to be with somebody that that I really would take that risk every time to drive across, by myself, to get to LA.
