The Chain Gang of 1974 unveiled the official music video for “Wallflowers” off their upcoming album FELT… and it’s a must-watch!
The unique video strays from the typical music video format into mini-documentary format, following the story of an Iranian adolescent whose family immigrated to the US at a dire moment in her battle with cancer. The band shares a unique story with the track,celebrating survivorship: in health, immigration, race and love.
Kamtin Mohager told Billboard of his approach to this video, “I didn’t want to present ‘Wallflowers’ in the typical music video fashion. I wrote this song knowing that it was bigger than me; a story needed to be told, with the song serving solely as its soundtrack. This represents love. This represents care. This represents all of us.”
The upcoming album FELT will be The Chain Gang of 1974’s third full-length project. The multi-instrumentalist worked with Thom Powers of The Naked and Famous to produce the LP, which will be released June 23 via Caroline Records.
