Locksley on the Lower East Side
Thanks to @jenniapolis for sending along the link to this music video by Madison-based (but now Brooklyn) foursome Locksley. Entitled “Darling It’s True” (first single from their upcoming album Be in Love), the video centers on the lead singer as he walks the streets of the Lower East Side, including significant face time on Rivington and Attorney. Shout outs include Clemente Soto Velez and Stop 1 Deli. We reached out to the director, Chris Stocksmith, to find out more information.
– Video was shot back in April (4/22/09). The chosen take was actually shot in a light rain. We wrapped the camera in a garbage bag.
– We shot seven takes. The first three takes went sour early on, then the next four were complete. Of those four, we had two takes that were hard to choose between.
– The shot is 6 minutes, 22 seconds in length. As you can see, we sped through parts to fit the final song length of 3 ½ minutes.
– The guy working at the bodega is Louis Santell, a NYC based musician, who actually works at the bodega. Always the great self-promoter, he taped his name on the hat.
