The Medium - "Good ol' Days" Official Video Premiere
Take a look at Nashville-based The Medium’s video for their latest release “Good ol’ Days” from their upcoming album “Get It While It’s Hot”. Opening with the four pieces all in their own respective squares, a lá The Brady Bunch, they introduce us into their sitcom-on-acid world complete with insect-ridden dinners, matching outfits, and a nutty doctor. The video, directed by Daniel Yocum, takes on a satirical point of view on nostalgia, shot all in black and white with a handful of wacky characters all seemingly a bit off their rockers.
"The song was inspired by our friends from a couple years back,” the band’s Shane Perry shared, “It's maybe a bit tongue-in-cheek because it sounds like a bygone pop-rock genre and acknowledges itself in the title, referencing the past. It's ironic - or at least, it's self-aware.” The retro style is apparent in the song’s psychedelic leanings; sliding strings and harmonies are reminiscent of a post-India Beatles, drawing the viewer deeper into the video’s contorted reality. “ I think it's a song about being nostalgic about nostalgia,” Sam Silva added, “Or, nostalgic for a time that never was.”
