Watch Kongos’ Brand New Music Video for ‘I Want to Know’
Instead of going for an elaborate and dramatic music video for their latest single, 'I Want to Know,' Kongos went with a straightforward tour documentary.
Filmed completely in black and white, the video takes a look at the band of brothers on the road while they hit some major festivals, including Lollapalooza, Corona Capital and Kerfuffle.
Directed by the band, videographers Nick Morgulis and Jonny Marlow also captured the bandmates skateboarding through the halls of a European arena on their tour with OneRepublic -- giving fans a peek behind-the-scenes of tour life.
"We really wanted to capture the feel of a Kongos show in this video," the band explains. "A lot of people might only know us as 'that song on the radio ['Come With Me Now'],' so we wanted to give the viewer a sense of what the band is all about. Because the footage is from so many different nights, we went with black and white to tie it all together and give it a consistent flow. Plus, it makes us look cooler than we are."
'I Want to Know' is the feel-good, reggae-meets-rock track off Kongos' self-released 2014 album, 'Lunatic.'
