We
here at the BLURT security compound have been holed up and watching the new
video from A City On A Lake – which you may have heard is Alex Wong’s latest
project. The album was released on July 17 and the video/first single is “Oceanside.” The clip was
created by Lawrence Chen and Hagan Wong and features Mexican star – and
Wong’s touring keyboard player – Ximena Sariñana. Check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

 

According
to Wong, “The song uses the imagery of gated communities in Southern California as a metaphor for how we like to
create our own realities, keeping in the things we want to see and blocking out
the things we don’t.  The music video for Oceanside is a surreal journey through the
subconscious. I travel through a series of fantastical worlds, chasing the
unobtainable, with each seemingly happy memory just outside my grasp.

 

“I met the
directors Lawrence Chen and Hagan Wong through their work on Delta Rae’s “Bottom of
the River” video
(the single off the LP I produced for the
band).”
