Music Video Premiere: The Black Keys, “Gold On The Ceiling”

by (@kat_george)

The Black Keys gave us a peek at their video for “Gold On The Ceiling” last week, and now we’ve got the whole shebang available for your viewing pleasure. The second single from their breakthrough album, El Camino, “Gold On The Ceiling” is an honest, organic rock song that is as faithful to the roots of the genre as any modern band can be. The video features footage from New York, with lines of people waiting to get into their shows at the Bowery Ballroom and Webster Hall for their album launch tour, as well as some dates in Los Angeles and overseas. There’s also footage of the guys recording in the studio, and an adorable trying on clothing montage in which they giggle over a bedazzled jacket. Mixed in are also some serious, “the road is a grind” moments with the band traveling in cars and airports, but overall, the vibe of the video is a fun one, and gives a sense of the adventure The Black Keys have partaken in during their meteoric rise over the last few months.
