Official music video for KT+SOS "Wide Open Plain" directed by Miriam Bennett. "Wide Open Plain" from THE SHAPE THE COLOR THE FEEL is now available on iTunes.
"Wide Open Plain" is the seventh music video to be released for THE SHAPE THE COLOR THE FEEL visual album. The video was shot at KT+SOS headquarters in Nashville’s Silver Point Studios where many of the films for The Shape The Color The Feel were made and where the band wrote much of the record. Director Miriam Bennett has directed several videos for KT+SOS including “Best Friends’ Love” and “Blue Hotel,” both of which premiered earlier this year on Esquire.com.
“Wide Open Plain” was the first video to be shot for The Shape The Color The Feel, establishing the project’s emphasis on collaboration from the get go as “Hangover” director and album artist Jessie English (see the mini-doc on the SHAPE COLOR FEEL art exhibit), assisted Bennett on the shoot, along with Jason Smythe, Silver Point Studios exec and director of “Looking Around.” Adam Smalley, who directed the forthcoming short film, Let Me Go, assisted on the set in Cleveland, where Bennett filmed the dance sequence choreographed and performed by Ryan Seitheach McMahon.
The Shape The Color The Feel is a visual album released by Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden on their own Red Valise Recordings label. Raising over $21,000 via Kickstarter, the band embarked on what the Huffington Post called an “admirably ambitious project to bring the best of the past and the present together, to recapture some of what music has lost to technology.” The band invited ten different filmmakers to make short films or music videos for each of the songs on the album, giving them complete creative control. These aural and visual pairings continue to premiere while in the meantime, Kate Tucker and Miriam Bennett are producing a documentary about the creative community emerging out of the project.
