Stories Don’t End
I was first introduced to Dawes on a stretch of deserted highway in 2010, following the band’s first release, North Hills. It was a fitting introduction. My production team and I were struggling to film a grueling cross-country video series, but we lost our motivation somewhere in Mississippi. Our cinematographer thankfully plugged his iPod into the van stereo and launched the opening track, “That Western Skyline.” It was soft, simple, and became a prescription for our myopia.
