The band wanted to do something lively and have it be a callback to their youth to fit the song.
“We have known Chris Fafalios for a long time for having done concerts with his group Punchline. We love its animation. It fit the vibe of this video perfectly, especially with all the parody aspects,” McMillon continued.
The Story Changes, which formed over a decade ago here in Dayton, took their time recording this latest album and the music videos that followed. Recording for the first time in a home studio, which they describe as both “scary and exhilarating”, allowed the band to take their time.
“Once we got over the initial fear of doing it ourselves, it was completely liberating and an absolute rush,” McMillion said. “The whole experience set the stage for how we approached creating the videos and additional content for the album.”
