RICHARD SWIFT And Spinner Premiere Video for Atlantic Ocean

The title track from RICHARD SWIFT latest, charming longplayer Atlantic Ocean gets things started off just right, with it’s bouncy ramshackle-kraut vibe and Swift taking some kindhearted (and self-deprecating?) jabs at hipsterdom. Now, Swift and the good folks at Spinner have offered up the video premiere of “Atlantic Ocean.”

Spinner talked to Swift and director Lance Troxel about the making of the video: “There’s nothing like a good robot war in a car lot. Singer-songwriter Richard Swift will back us on this one and does in the video for ‘The Atlantic Ocean,’ from his album of the same name. “When filming the car lot shots, all the sales guys stood to the side, scratching their heads and one took pictures of us with this gigantic, opened laptop,” director Lance Troxel tells Spinner. “I thought he looked stranger than our good, old-fashioned high-noon robot showdown. They seemed worried that we were making fun of Buicks.” But Swift tells a different story. “Lance is a total liar,” he says. “We didn’t film any of this. We built a time machine and traveled back to September 27, 1987, and we stole a public access channel’s midnight dance reel. Lance, I am getting really sick of your lying.” Easy boys. Watch the exclusive premiere below.”
