Brooklyn pop band Camera2 have unveiled the video for Wasted, the third episode of their nine-part video series, all starring the same kid: lead singer Andy Chase's son Julien:
I was searching for inspiration to tell me what to do with the Camera2 album I'd just finished. We thought having a young boy wandering the streets of Manhattan would be a great foil to what people would normally expect when listening to the lyrics. We chose my son Julien to be the kid since I had always wanted to do something creative with him, and Times Square at midnight was such a compelling location.
After the Wasted video was finished I realized we had stumbled on the inspiration I had been searching for... and this started the 9 video journey with the same team of people. "Wasted" was the song... the video... that started it all.
Wasted is a soft-spoken meandering late-night song, with rather harsh lyrics, catching the casual listener off guard.
