This Just In: “Rollercoaster” Music Video // Bleachers
Jack Antonoff, of fun. fame, is the leadman of his side project band, Bleachers. Their first single, “I Wanna Get Better” is a triumph all on it’s own. Since the release of their debut record, Strange Desire, Bleachers have gone back and filmed a rather cool video for their latest song, “Rollercoaster” via Pitchfork.
Chasing a gal down a highway, Antonoff wakes up midream and proceeds to perform the song on top of a moving car.
Here’s what Antonoff had to say about the video:
“The idea of getting on top of a car and playing on a highway felt distinctly 90s in a way that excited me about videos I saw growing up. Didn’t think it would be acutely dangerous — the breaks ended up going out and we literally almost died. There’s something special about almost dying for a video. Beyond that, “Rollercoaster” was written while I was driving home on the NJ turnpike. The song always felt like driving on a highway to me sonically. That part was perfect. Working with Richard was a dream because of his wide scale cinematic feeling. The car crash in his film Dom Hemingway is possibly the coolest thing I have ever seen in my life.”
