The Modern Primitives have been stirring up a buzz in the local music scene for years. The band's music is unpretentious - no frills indie rock and roll. In the band's new video for “Lay With The Dead,” they're on the receiving end of some pretty disturbing chaos.
In the video, members of the three-piece band - Travis Philips (guitar, vocals), Phillip Gripper (drums), Tim Nhu (bass) - meet three femme fatales (Kacie Smagacz, Nicole Story, Danielle Eldarini) dressed in white, who chase them with machetes and take pleasure in slashing them to bits. Gruesome, huh?
Gripper wrote and directed the video, which he said was shot in one day. “[We spent] probably three hours at the warehouse and one at my house for the instrument clips,” said Gripper.
The video, filmed and edited by Tim Hendrick with additional filming by Dustin “Dingus” Staley, was recorded by Jeffrey Saer.
