Father John Misty Celebrates Love In ‘Chateau Lobby #4′ Video
What could be more romantic than documenting your wedding anniversary with a music video? That's what Father John Misty thought when he filmed the video for his new track, 'Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins).' Check it out above.
Filmed completely with an iPad, Misty, otherwise known as Josh Tillman, and his wife, Emma, are enjoying a lazy day together eating a delicious pancake breakfast, lounging around their bed and enjoying the sunshine on the terrace. But with Tillman in charge of directing and filming, the video couldn't just be a straightforward, cute documentary of their love. He also added a kaleidescope filter throughout the visual to add some pretty trippy effects.
"It would have been impossible for me to write about the last few years of my life in some singular, didactic way and have it bear any resemblance to the truth," he said in a statement. "I lost my mind with jealousy as well as discovered a new echelon of liberty I had no idea existed. I flirted with disaster and also realized my love is a precious thing to give. I indulged my planetary self-pity and learned how to kill my ego by seeing myself through the eyes of someone who loves me. Thus, this thing is a little all over the place, and simultaneously all points on the same continuum."
He also added that he doesn't mind if this clip isn't your cup of tea. "I don’t care all that much if you like the music video or not," Tillman said. "The label isn’t crazy about it. Management isn’t crazy about it. I have been informed I’m basically kissing an MTV 'Woodie' award goodbye forever. I made it on an iPad on my wedding anniversary with the one I love. We ate pancakes."
It's a beautiful video as long as you don't don't mind the warped images on your screen. If you do, just shut your eyes and listen to the pretty tune, which will be off Father John Misty's upcoming album, 'I Love You Honeybear,' out on Feb. 10 via Sub Pop.
