Moonlight Social are back with a new single, “Where the World Ends.” We have the exclusive premiere of the music video for the new song.
Moonlight Social is Jennica Scott and Jeremy Burchard. They’re a duo that formed back in 2010 when they met as members of the University of Texas Longhorn Marching Band. Fast forward to 2016 when the band packed up their lives and left Austin to come to Nashville. After moving to Music City, they really got to work.
They released an EP, Make You Smile, earlier this year. Although we loved those songs (especially “My Everything“), we’re stoked for new music from the country duo. “Where the World Ends” is our first taste of new tunes and the video gives us flashbacks to some of our favorite Wes Anderson films (this makes sense since Moonlight Social are Texas graduates and so is Anderson).
Moonlight Social’s Burchard actually wrote, directed and produced the video that features members of the Vanderbilt University Spirit of Gold Marching Band. They play the high school kids in the cool visual. You’ll also see cameos from Nashville pop singer Rachel Price (as the bride) and their live band, too!
“This video was a lot of hard work, but in the end it turned out perfectly. It’s a snapshot of our personalities and it was a blast to put it all together,” Scott explains. “And working with the marching band was super fun. It took me back to my days in marching band which was one of my favorite parts of high school.”
The duo actually built the whole set for this video in an empty room. That includes finding the chalkboard from a 1930s-era classroom! That wasn’t always the plan, though. They originally intended to use a school but local schools no longer allow filming. That’s when they decided to build their own set! (Since then, Metro Nashville has said they’ll allow people to apply to film at schools again.)
“Everybody involved with making this video is a legend in my book. From the amazing woman at the prop house who helped us load the van full of set design pieces to all the busy students who took time out of their weekend to put their uniforms back on and march in a parking lot,” Burchard says.
“A lot of moving parts came together to make this vision a reality, and it makes my heart smile every time I think about it. We know there are a lot of people who probably have similar experiences to ours, and our hope is this video will put a smile on their face and make them look back on all that drama and laugh.”
