Francis and the Lights

This obviously isn’t a $1,000,000 video. So? Francis and the Lights‘ latest clip didn’t need a mean budget to be the winner it is. Lights keyboardist Jake Schreier pulled a double shift and directed the dazzling, yet simple video in one take.

The band jams in an abandoned warehouse while lanterns, lamps, and spotlights beam in and out. Get it? It’s just Francis Farewell Starlite, his band, and the lights. To close things out Francis grabs a flashlight, finding his way to a space open enough for him to dance. And then he lets loose. This just goes to show you that when you have talent and qualities as captivating as his, bells and whistles aren’t necessary. Just a stage and some lights.

“Darling, It’s Alright” is the first single from Francis and the Lights’ forthcoming album, It’ll Be Better. It comes out this July, but you can stream the entire album here.
