Los Angeles native musician, producer and vocalist Jonathan Bates aka Big Black Delta has unveiled the video for "Love You This Summer", taken from his self-titled album, released back in April via Master Of Bates.
The track serves as the b-side to the record's second single 'Money Rain Down'.
The video was directed by Nicolás Prados of 7 Inch Videos, and uses vintage footage from the legendary film 'Badlands', starring Sissy Spacek. Prados said of the project "'Love You This Summer', set to 'Badlands', is an effort to express the need people have to escape our everyday realities and live an adventure. It seeks to echo some of Freud's writings concerning civilization, and how humans tend to idealize nature, forgetting its violent essence, but more importantly, ignoring the frustration and anxiety inside us that provokes this discontent. The video adresses escapism and tries to convey how violence is part of human nature, laying beneath our fantasies and actions."
