With “Tiny Raindrop,” the second video from Balance and Composure‘s new album The Things We Think We’re Missing, frontman Jon Simmons trips on fireworks, wheat fields and blurry car rides. The band’s eye-catching clip matches the expansive, guitar-driven sound that links them to the Smashing Pumpkins and Band of Horses.
“The video was directed by our good friend Alex Henery and he had the idea of making the video a dream concept,” Simmons tells Rolling Stone. “We decided to have shots with me and a girl, Caroline Newton, but it’s hard to see her face in full, just like a real dream. The video is me having visions of being with her but then repeatedly losing her. We shot the video all over Bucks County in our hometown and some shots in Philadelphia.”
The clip’s exterior footage is fitting, considering that Simmons and his bandmates – Erik Petersen, Andy Slaymaker, Matt Warner and Bailey Van Ellis – wrote the bulk of the album in the scenic Poconos. They recently wrapped a national tour with Coheed and Cambria.
