Shot on location throughout Contra Costa County, California, Big Tree's new music video explores two central themes of escape and surrender. Director Adrian Elliot and Director of Photography Ian Levine use beautiful imagery to capture both the monotony of band/tour life and the relief that comes from the fantasy of open space.

"Raise the Flag" is sort of a frustrated, sad dance song.  "I wrote it at 2am one night- I jumped out of bed and it came pouring out of me," says singer Kaila McIntyre-Bader. "Like humans do, I'd reached a certain emotional limit, and I just wanted QUIET. Kind of funny that the need for stillness and silence created sound."  While the chorus repeats the same words over and over, the sonic layers grow with each new verse, until the final moment of surrender at the song's end. The band took a step away from its usual "organic," live way of recording, and spent several months with producer/engineer William Sammons honing in on new sounds and textures.
