Washington DC soul-rock trio Mission South just dropped the music video for their new single "Peaches," and the clip tells a twisted, mysterious love story. Two actors play curious neighbors at a motel, who meet face to face when one shows up bruised and bloodied at the other's door. Watch the clip above, exclusively at Fuse.TV.
Despite the high production value and plot twists and turns, it turns out the video's concept came together at the last minute. "We actually had a completely different concept that involved some serious pyrotechnics," singer-guitarist Dan Miller explains. "But the landlord of the property we were going to use pulled the plug in the eleventh hour. We came up with [the concept] in a single hour the night before we were scheduled to shoot."
The video leaves viewers with a chilling, open-ended conclusion as the female lead is bloodied and battered, possibly even dead. "The story is so subtle and twisted," adds bassist John Beck. "You definitely get that 'What's gonna happen next?' feeling."
"We wanted something that captured the intensity and seductive sound of 'Peaches,'" Miller adds. "It's sexy, but dark."
