Today, ABC World News Sunday correspondent/ABC News Now Amplified host Dan Harris unveiled his fun video for Mates of State. The duo plays a bouncy cover of Daniel Johnston‘s “True Love Will Find You In the End,” a tune off their new covers album, Crushes: The Covers Mixtape. The low-budget clip was filmed in Kori Gardiner and Jason Hammel’s basement (they’re married) and then the footage was projected onto random stuff in and around the New York subway system. Amplified producer David Wharton, photojournalist Andy Bowley, and editor Mark Monroy also helped out with the visual endeavor. Watch it here and the “making the video” clip below.

Harris says the idea came to him while downing “beers and pork buns in lower Manhattan a few months ago.” He continues, “I was telling Jason, somewhat sheepishly, that I had made a super-low-budget video for the post-punk band Jawbox when I was in college in 1992. I then mentioned that I had one other concept for a video that I’d never actually made. The idea was to shoot a band playing their song, then take the footage of that performance and project it all over the place—on people, surfaces, animals, whatever.” Check out Mates of State’s summer tour dates here.
