Corey Harper Releases Official Video For “Entertainment” – Watch Now

It was important to me to get back to my roots and shoot this music video out in Oregon’s nature, far removed from the noise of Los Angeles. The video highlights the surroundings that inspired my music and lifestyle from an early age. Oregon is an incredible place. I don’t think people fully understand how beautiful and diverse the landscape is there. I grew up surfing, snowboarding, and playing music all over Oregon. The state has everything you could want to be inspired, but with the juxtaposition of the PNW’s gloom, fog, rain, and cold. It is very unique, and I think its inspiration is evident in the “Entertainment” music video. – Corey Harper

“I think when we made that song it was about that moment where you are trying to convince yourself to continue,” Jody says. “You question a lot of shit and you’re looking at a lot of shit and there are so many times when you feel hope isn’t an option and you’re like fuck it. But you gotta continue cause you’re trying to get out of the bucket. Remembering what the point of everything is.”
