East Of The Wall Premiere “Clapping On The Ones And Threes” Music Video


A music video for East Of The Wall‘s new track “Clapping On The Ones And Threes” has premiered online and is available below. The song appears on the band’s forthcoming album “NP-Complete” with bassist/vocalist Chris Alfano stating of the video for it it:

“The video features animation from a short film called ‘Elephants Dream‘. It’s the first open movie, created back in 2006 by a collaborative group of people from around the using open-source software, and released under creative commons. Jolil Ula from Vacant Eye films shot all the live footage of us, and then edited it together with the narrative. Having originally just seen the live footage, and the short film, going back and watching them edited together into a singular piece recontextualized both, and I’m really happy with how it turned out.”

He also had some words to share on the track itself:

“‘Clapping on the Ones and Threes‘ was the first song we wrote for ‘NP-Complete‘. The first sessions were way back in late 2013 before our previous record ‘Redaction Artifacts‘ was released. We tweaked it several times along the way, and the final vocal parts weren’t ironed out until the end of the recording process last year. But for the most part, we’ve had this one for a while – so it’s nice to have it finally released to the world.

We chose Clapping… for the first video because it covers so much ground, sonically and dynamically. It shows off the three-guitar approach better than some of the other tracks on the record (since many of the songs on ‘NP-Complete‘ were penned when we were a four-piece), and features some of the most diverse instrumentation: acoustic guitars, mellotrons, more modern-sounding synthesizers, both of our melodic vocalists, and so on.”
