DC based rock band, One Way Out, capture the raw energy of their live concerts in the new music video for “Liquid Paradise”. With a mighty crash of cymbals and swirling power chords, lead singer, Josh Gaba emerges with a snarl on his face as he unleashes his punky vocals on the crowd.
The entire video is a one-shot performance of the song performed at the famous DC9 venue in DC. “We love opening with that song because it just goes from 0 to 100,” says guitarist Jake Schaefer. “It feels like a splash of cold water in the face, it just gets us in the zone we need to be in to be amped up for a show, and hopefully it does the same for the crowd.”
Combining elements of arena rock with a punk-like aggression, the band puts its power on full display with this video. The main shot primarily watches Schaefer shred on guitar, but thoughtfully captures the band with some panning and quick zooming in and out. It’s as dynamic and raw as their performance making it an enticing watch that shows the band as they are.
