One week after releasing the single “Miseducated,” three of Tennessee’s next generation are back with one hell of a cinematic experience. Shot by two of Nashville’s premier videographers, All 3y3Z & SKY, the viewer will find it arduous not to imagine themselves accompanying the triad as they bounce in the Lac through the Nashville night.
While both Arnold and Blackson have continued releasing music at warp speed, “Miseducated” marks a pivotal moment in the trajectory of GATES’ career. Interestingly enough, the collaboration between Gates and Arnold is the first official release of their 3+ years of friendship and session work.
” I couldn’t be more excited,” Gates reiterated. “After working together so frequently for years, I’m grateful to show the people a glimpse of what those moments are like.”
After witnessing countless sessions between the two, the infectious energy the viewer immerses themselves into with “Miseducated” is always tangible wherever the two find themselves creating. Add a few neat whiskey glasses, cute dogs, and some good weed and it’s an official outing.
Last week over a few beers and pizza, I watched the group put the final touches on a seemingly already finished product. Washing down some Heineken as I pondered my brain, the feeling of camaraderie was euphoric in the house. While I might have thought the video was release-ready, the creative sparks between the three were firing on all cylinders right up until release. Complacency isn’t round this way.
On top of the already stacked lineup, Case and Co enlisted one of Nashville’s best and brightest – A.B. Eastwood- to handle the adlibs. It’s a team effort, ya feel me?
