Midlake Wed to Video for ‘Young Bride’

The ten-week-long marathon of Midlake music videos is nearing an end. These Texas soft-rockers have released one clip for each song off The Trials of Van Occupanther, and already brought you the premieres for “Head Home” and “Van Occupanther.” The video for “Young Bride” hit the web earlier this year, but now drummer McKenzie Smith is dishing on its filming in the scenic California locales of San Francisco, Berkeley, and Lake Tahoe.

“We filmed all the library shots in one day and then got to hang out and watch them film some of the house scenes in this great mansion in Berkeley,” Smith told “After we left, the [crew] went up to Tahoe to film all of the snow scenes. The cinematography is beautiful, and I think the snowy landscapes fit perfectly with the song. This was our first time to hand over creative control for a video, and we were pleased with the outcome.”

Budding directors have been creating their own videos for “It Covers the Hillsides,” the only song from the album Midlake did not make a clip for, to win mad Midlake swag. Hurry and head to to vote on your favorite clip!
