Early Riser Goes ’90s VH1 For Their New Video

Brooklyn band Early Riser mined VH1 ’90s phenomenon Pop-Up Video for their video for “Find Me for the Waltz,” premiering today on TIDAL.

“We all binge-watched a ton of pop-up videos from the ’90s, including ones by Lisa Loeb, Jewel, Alanis Morissette and No Doubt,” the band’s Kiri Oliver (guitars, keys, vocals) told us. “We drew inspiration from those for the setting and look of the video, which was shot entirely at my parents’ brownstone in Park Slope, Brooklyn. For the pop-ups themselves, our aim was to be partially true to the style of the originally, and partially leaning toward the absurd.”

The video, directed by Drew Kaufman, highlights the bubbly yet wry nature of the band, which, along with Oliver, features Heidi Vanderlee on vocals and cello. ”The song is about being alone and sad at a show, but then deciding to reclaim the experience as something positive,” Oliver says. ”The refrain is ‘this night belongs to me,’ which turns into ‘this life belongs to me’ at the end of the song.”
