Mice Parade - This River Has A Tide

Frontman Adam Pierce says it’s about “the Hudson River and a breakup”.

The setting for the video is Los Angeles, which posed somewhat of a problem for Paul Yates (director) since, other than its ocean border, it’s largely waterless. To achieve the clip’s “liquid feel,” he had to shoot by the Los Angeles River, “which is really beautiful,” he says, “but full of dead animals, needles, and a small homeless population that one tries not to disturb.” And while that may sound difficult to maneuver, it wasn’t the hardest aspect of making the video; that honor goes to the long-exposure night and daytime shots. “Each frame of that work took about 30 seconds to shoot, so for approximately one second of footage it would take about 12 minutes,” explains. “The actress was able to move very little the whole night … She was freezing!”
