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.
Gold On The Ceiling
After The Black Keys‘ break out year in 2011 and their amazing viral video for “Lonely Boy,” we’re going to forgive you if you squeal like a school girl over this sneak peek of the video for their second single off El Camino, “Gold On The Ceiling.” The video features footage of The Black Keys playing live on stage to a jumping audience, but is cinematic all the same, so chances are you’re going to find yourself with your hands in the air, moshing to the beat. The full video will premiere online at MTV.com on Monday the 6th of February, and will be followed up with a Top 20 premiere on Saturday the 11th of February.
