It’s with great pleasure that we unveil to you the new video for “Safe and Sound” on VEVO, directed by Grady Hall from Motion Theory and choreographed by Mandy Moore (Silver Linings Playbook).
Watch as exuberant dancers from various eras and cultures participate in a dance off inspired by Capital Cities and the majestic setting of the Los Angeles Theatre.
I had the pleasure of working with the talented group Capital Cities on the music video for the single Safe and Sound. I had such a fun time styling these great guys. Get ready for your new favorite summer jam!
It’s weird, I don’t get shy around musicians at all but get me near photographers I admire and I tend to be a bit quiet and reserved. It was so easy to be comfortable working with Sheryl; she was gracious, down to earth and all around lovely. Ben had a crew of super cute and friendly assistants and he had the best energy on set but I never let him know how I was so very excited to work with him. (Now I am saying it, at the comfort of my keyboard!)
It was a busy summer of back to back shoots prior to moving out to LA and this was a highlight for sure.
Once When I Was styling Death Cab For Cutie I got to go to a VH-1 taping of an Elvis Costello show that was being recorded in Atlantic City. I love DCFC and Elvis Costello so I was beyond excited to get to see this concert. I was backstage with the boys and we were all discussing our favorite Elvis Costello songs and I said mine was I Want You. It’s a really sad, desperate tear-jerker and just kills me every time I hear it. You must be wondering what all of this has to do with Fiona Apple. Then Ben says to me I think that is the song Fiona is singing. Come on, let’s go find her. Ben and Nick take me to find Fiona and they introduce us and tell her she is singing my favorite song. I gush and tell her how that song destroys me and she agrees. I was dressed up in a vintage sparkly 50’s dress because a) we were in AC and b) it was the night before my birthday and Fiona then says you are so beautiful and then I swooned and was all, “NO! You are so beautiful!” and then we got all girl crushy and hugged and I blushed and ran away.
I bought her new record and have been listening to it non stop and thinking about what a gorgeous, sweet and talented person she is and how blessed I am to have crossed paths with her. Oh yeah, her performance that night of I Want You totally gutted me and I stood at the front of the stage crying.
