The Dears, It’s for their song “I Used To Pray For The Heavens To Fall” which comes from the band’s upcoming album Times Infinity Volume One, out September 25th.
Times Infinity Volume One is a truly sweeping collection of orchestral pop / rock that is at once enlightening, angst-ridden and mesmerizing – a sound that has connected the group with a legion of fans and critics such as Rolling Stone, New York Times and NPR.
“Believe it or not, this is our very first ‘lyric video.’ We asked our pal Sinbad (Omega Dog video director) to create something special, something that would appeal to everyone, young and old. What he delivered was a ‘lyric video+’ that made Natalia [Yanchak – band keyboardist and Murray’s wife], cry the first time she saw it.” – Murray Lightburn
“Murray came by to sit down and talk about the video and the overall sentiment of Times Infinity. The point that mostly inspired the concept for I Used To Pray For The Heavens to Fall was when he described the feeling when Natalia and the kids leave the house and he has a deep sinking feeling of concern for them. I thought this was a dark and sweet notion of family and the story applies that notion to a young couple that are torn apart by entomology. I can’t say how the Hercules beetle character came to be, it really just popped in my head once I started thinking of the story on an insect level.” – Director Sinbad Richardson
