Watch Twin Peaks “Walk to the One You Love”

Chicago’s Twin Peaks have proven themselves to be quite adept and more than comfortable behind the camera (just check out the band’s snapchat) sharing the self-shot video for Walk To the One You Love, the first track off their upcoming record Down in Heaven. Directed by Ryan Ohm, the single-shot video was filmed around Chicago and follows a group of people getting up to trouble around the city.

Singer Cadien Lake James shared a short statement about the video:

When Ryan, Jackson [James, director of photography], and I began to tackle coming up with a concept for the video, we started with a few simple ideas (moving feet, odd settings), playing with the idea of overlapping them. As we continued to flesh it out, we realized we could unite them fluidly while also challenging ourselves to do something new for us (both the artist and the filmmakers) by doing a one-shot video with feet leading you between these different scenes. Ryan and Jackson did some scouting and we landed on a stretch of Ravenswood St. here at home in Chicago where there would be enough variation in setting to keep a one shot video visually grabbing; abandoned house, sidewalk, viaduct, stretch of fence, an alley underneath the elevated train. It was fun casting a video with friends and doing a video where the band wasn’t the center of attention, it felt more like a making a piece of art from our end of things. We made it in an afternoon, everyone pulling their weight and executing well together. It was a lot of fun and a very gratifying experience!
