After the recent release of Graham Czach's newest record, the Star By Star EP, the minister of modern rock has decided to release the music video for the first single "Fake It". The Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist and composer has stunned listeners yet again with the virtuosity, versatility, and vehemence of his music. The second track off the album dives headfirst into the concept of making compromises while doing whatever you can to make a relationship work. Pulsing drums and thick bass lines lead the song as surprisingly intricate guitar work weaves through. Atop all the drama, Graham's vocals soar in an act of self-sacrifice.
The music video for "Fake It" finds Graham Czach and co. performing a live run-through of the song. The essence of the video comes from the camera work and visual elements. The pacing and direction of the video ebbs and flows in accordance with the music. Opening with rapid movements and quick cuts, the chaos of the story is reflected in the flashing lights behind the band and the disorienting wavy filter applied to select shots. As soon as the verse hits, however, the mood shifts to a more psychedelic feel. Dark, warm colors are cast over the band while projections of young starlets and astral imagery are displayed over and behind them. The video calms during an acoustic interlude for the bridge, followed by an explosion of mayhem. Graham Czach remains calm and collected up front while the rest of the band spirals into a frenzy of pandemonium.
