The Lemon Twigs are a promising new brother duo from Long Island. Tomorrow (October 14) they release their debut album, Do Hollywood, on 4AD. The album was recorded in Los Angeles (hence its title) and was produced by Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado and partly mirrors Foxygen’s glorious retro ‘70s rock vibe. Now they have shared a video for “As Long As We’re Together.” Autumn de Wilde directed the video, which features the band performing the song in the dessert. 1970s legend Elton John is a big fan of The Lemon Twigs and actually premiered the song on his Twitter feed. Watch the video below, followed by John’s tweet.

De Wilde had this to say about the video in a press release: “First, I listened to the song 100 times… as I do, eyes closed…. except when driving. I kept ending up in an empty golden landscape. I’m obsessed with the space-age future once described by the past… now lost and forgotten. I talked to production designers, Adam Siegel and Tina Pappas about creating a colorful apocalyptic barren universe. They came back to me with this amazing car. It was the car that Catwoman fake-kidnapped the Joker in on Batman the TV show AND Captain Kirk’s hotrod on Star Trek. Shirley Kurata dug for colors and textures to compliment the car and found this amazing vintage pink satin wings jacket. Vanessa Price jumped in the van with us and brought all her favorite dusty desert makeup. The Lemon Twigs are unbelievable live…. so I knew I wanted to do a performance video, but still place them in an electric surreal dream world. The wind picked up and howled through us. The car wouldn’t start. My bare-bones camera department was DP Matt Lloyd, producer Saul Germaine, two shitty folding chairs, me and a camera. The dust and wind became a monster we were battling all day, but we all had a blast…. and damn it looked good.”
