The Artist Explains: Molly Moore - 'Natural Disaster' (MTS Remix)



The wonderful Molly Moore speaks to us about the ideas behind her music video for 'Natural Disaster' (MTSmusic remix) directed by Nik Tizekker and Molly Moore in association with Tizaster Productions.
Written by Molly Moore, Melanie Fontana, Steve Dresser and Brandyn Burnette, 'Natural Disaster' (MTS Remix) is produced by Matthew Shell and is a gorgeous cinematic pop track with live instrumentation from Vahagn Stepanyan on piano and string performance & arrangement courtesy of Yoed Nir String Productions backing Molly's beautiful vocals.


Molly Moore Explains:
We filmed the video in Huntington Beach and made some stops along the way for some other scenes. We wanted to go for more of a cinematic looking story with the song being the soundtrack.
A funny behind the scenes story... the running shot was actually us being kicked out of the shipping/storage area we were guerilla-style shooting in. The themes & symbolism with imagery are all deriving from the idea that our darkness is a figment of our imagination. We can choose to follow it, or run from it, or let it take us over. I wanted to paint the picture of a cat & mouse chase between body/mind/spirit/light & fear. I liked this concept so much because while it encapsulates the brooding, emotional vibe of the song, I found it to be empowering in a visceral way. Ultimately the message for me was to express this kind of relationship in an artistic, creatively impactful way... I wanted people to question whether the darkness is coming from an external source or if it's possibly an internal, self-fulfilling prophecy.
