In the music video, Aoki and Taking Back Sunday are summoned from a TV into an old motel. They terrorize the guests staying there, appearing in their rooms and making the lights pulse with their presence.
Adam Lazzara of Taking Back Sunday spoke about the collab in a press release.
“Getting a call asking if we wanted to write with Steve Aoki was very surreal. Steve comes from a very similar background as we do, house shows, DIY labels, the whole thing,” Lazzara says. “We were listening back to different ideas he had, and one guitar part in particular caught our drummer Mark’s ear. We approached it in the same way we do our own songs, and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Turns out our worlds aren’t as far apart as people might think.”
