Bishop Allen

To be honest: We screwed up most parts of the Bishop Allen song “Rain“. There’s too much light, bad sound at times and our cameraman crashed into a lantern when going backwards. Despite all this, it’s still a great video, only because it captures a great performance with a crazy guy walking directly towards the road with the heaviest traffic all over Vienna. Somehow, Bishop Allen singer and core member Justin (the other one is Christian) has managed to keep his enthusiasm although the band from Williamsburg, New York spent the whole year 2007 on tour – promoting their record “The Broken String” – and the whole year 2006 recording songs for their ambitious 12 EP’s project, in which they released an EP with four new songs every single month. Nonetheless, Bishop-Allen-songs never sound like hard work. They are catchy, lovable indie-tunes with a light-hearted, melancholic mood. Sony used the irresistible pop-appeal of the Bishop Allen song “Click Click Click Click” for a camera ad.
