JEFF the Brotherhood Teleport in Retro 'Leave Me Out' Video

Clip for 'Hypnotic Knights' standout makes good use of Chroma key

Marc Hogan

"Leave Me Out," from JEFF the Brotherhood's summer album Hypnotic Knights, is a loud-soft fuzz-popper about unrequited love, with unsubtle echoes of mid-'90s Weezer and the Rentals. Fittingly, the Nashville duo's video for the song takes a similarly nostalgic tack. Showing the brothers straight-facedly bashing out the song in front of a green-screen background that spans from hot air balloons to outer space (and beyond?), it's almost the music-video equivalent of that Wayne's World scene demonstrating the wonders of Chroma key. "She's so out of reach," sighs guitarist-singer Jake Orrall, when with the click of a button he could be in... Delaware.
