MusicRow Magazine 2015 Next Big Thing artist, Maddie & Tae, premiered a taste of the official music video for the sophomore single, “Fly,” with the release of a photo in suspended chairs. The 19-year olds turned to director Brian Lazzaro (Rilo Kiley, Cory Chisel, The Cadillac Three, Eli Young Band) to shoot a clip for the song.
“We didn’t want our second video to be anything like our first one, which was so fun,” Tae Dye explains. “I think Brian really took the idea of how vulnerable you feel when you’re trying and it’s crazy… and found ways that weren’t literal to represent that.”
“Brian’s amazing: the idea of ladders and chairs to show the climb?” continued Maddie Marlow. “Being suspended – which we are in the performance – is just how it feels when you want everything to happen, but you’re sort of stuck in what you want and how it is.”
In promotion of the single, the girls were in Chicago yesterday (Jan 26) performing live at 35,000 feet with Southwest Air. They also surprised each passenger with a copy of the Dot Records debut EP.
Only the third female duo in over 70 years to have a No. 1 with their first single, the girls brought their second single to the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last Friday (Jan. 23). Additionally, they have an opening spot on Dierks Bentley’s Sounds Of Summer Tour.
A release date for the official video has yet to be set. Listen to the “Fly” here.
