Listen to your conscience.
So says the note vocalist J.T. Daly wakes up to find in Paper Route‘s newest video. Shot in a black-and-white world of years passed, “You and I” has the Nashville-based band on a rescue mission.
“I’ve always wanted to work with the Smark Mark guys,” Daly tells Spinner of the production team. “I think they’re incredible artists and we’ve always seemed to be running parallel to each other with vision. This video as a whole, I think, captured every hidden image to this song. On first read of the director’s treatment, I was a bit frightened at how on point they were with my subconscious.”
Daly’s subconscious, it seems, leans towards the film-noir side.
“I get to punch someone, ride a motorcycle, and I get the girl,” he says. “We signed off after first read.”
