Crystal City: Three-Dimensionality

A few weeks ago Crystal City was in Des Moines shooting a video to promote their upcoming record, Three-Dimensionality. They asked me to come along and capture the process behind the scenes. This is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to work with them on a video shoot, last time it was for their Driving music video released in 2017.

This time they took to the studio. Working with DEFT, they crafted a truly unique video. The name ‘Three-Dimensionality’ reflects a change in the sound of the band. This is their third full-length release, following Bartenderly (2017) and Change (2014). The sound is more complex, thanks in part to the wide range of players that helped make it a reality. That complexity and depth is represented visually in the video.

I’m glad to have been a part of it, check out the behind the scenes!

Vinyl release show at The Mill May 18th.
