Published Nov 15, 2010Austin, TX-bred indie rock institution Spoon have had their songs featured in so many films that you would think they had some big-name directors in their Rolodex. But when it came time to shoot a video for Transference standout "Nobody Gets Me But You," Britt Daniel and co. decided to simplify with a live version from NYC's Cake Shop.
The famous NYC venue is notoriously small, however, and most audience members end up watching the bands play on a security camera, as the stage is blocked by whomever is in the front row. When Daniel saw Australian rockers Eddy Current Suppression Ring at the Cake Shop earlier this year, he was inspired by this technique.
As such, the video for "Nobody Gets Me But You" is taken straight from the perspective of those security cameras. The result is an eerily low quality clip that has a strange, almost sci-fi quality about it.
