Neon Trees has selected the winning video for their single “Your Surrender.” The band invited fans to submit their clips for the chance to be chosen as the official music video, and to win a Fender Blacktop guitar and a Fender G-DEC 3 of their choice.
Congrats to Eddie King & Tyler Marshall for coming up with the victorious clip, which you can enjoy below.
“When we were discussing the videos, we kept to referring to one as ‘the wrestler,’” posts the band on their website. “Our band loves being unpredictable, and we never imagined having a pro wrestler type in one of our vid’s. I liked his interaction with the main characters, as a force of nature, trying to keep these kids apart. In addition, there are other characters trying to do the same. The director did this in a fun, bittersweet way, especially for what is a darker, emotional pop song. In the typical balladry of love songs, it seems to always be one person addressing another. This video interprets the song as two kids collectively asking those influences around them to surrender to their (the kids) desire to be together.”
Twenty second-place finishers will also receive a Fender swag pack.
