This is a very serendipitous moment.
You guys know how I do the “Monday Feels” thing on my blog’s Facebook page? (If you don’t, immediately crawl out from underneath that rock you’ve been living under and follow the damn page!) Anyway, back when I was in Chicago for a friend’s wedding, I posted this song from The Dead Ships called, “Tomorrows Crashes“. The video was an in-studio type of deal, but the feelings towards the song went way beyond that. Although I didn’t know much about the actual meaning of the song beforehand, it resonated with me because that Tuesday, I would be leaving Chicago, my home, once again. I wasn’t looking forward to that tomorrow, on that Monday. It was the feel of all feels.
The Dead Ships just released a proper video for this song. And where oh where did they just so happen to film this video at? Oh you know, Chicago O’Hare International Airport, the same Chicago airport I was dreading to visit that “tomorrow”. Frontman, Devlin McCluskey shot the video on his iPhone while waiting at O’Hare for a red-eye, admist one of the airports most infamous terminals. As someone who uses their iPhone for pretty much everything, this is very relateable and impressive. No, I’m not making and directing videos, but I am writing this on my iPhone, these photos are from my iPhone, and my sense of humor and cunning charm are all from my iPhone as well (wink).
So without further ado, here is the video for, “Tomorrows Crashes”
