Video Premiere: Commonweather – “Ebro”

Posted: by The Editor

Last month, Illinois quartet Commonweather released “Ebro,” the first single off their forthcoming record Lemon due September 14th. Today, The Alternative has the pleasure of premiering the track’s music video directed by Alex Zarek.

Commonweather’s sound finds a balance between warbled, distorted guitars and moody lyrics. Throughout “Ebro,” the band offer a glimpse into their unique blend of ‘90s-influenced alternative rock. Every note and lyric on “Ebro” work together to tell the song’s story, painting a vibrant scene for the song to exist.

The video for “Ebro” layers bits and pieces from different scenes into one dreamy montage. While there may not be a specific story to follow in the video, the washed out colors and facial expressions make it easy to get lost in it all. According to the band, the video’s concept is inspired about acts from the past. “ It was pretty much just a nod to how people shot music videos back in the 80’s,” said guitarist Justin Olin. “ There’s really no connection behind lyrics or meaning. We just thought it’d be a fun idea to shoot and we thought it turned out great. Alex did an awesome job of capturing that vision.”

“Ebro” is the first single off the band’s new record, Lemon, available everywhere on September 14th. The band’s album release tour with Overgrow kicks off on September 16th with appearances along the east coast. In addition to the tour, Commonweather celebrate the release of Lemon on October 5th in Chicago, Illinois.

Keep an eye out for more details on Lemon, and be sure to catch the band at a show near you. Watch Commonweather’s video for “Ebro” below.
