Describing the official “stranger to me” video, Knowles says, “Building up to this album I knew that I really wanted to shoot something with a crazy landscape. I was also in love with TJ and Jonah’s overall direction for the video. I grew up going on vacations to the mountains, so to be able to shoot a music video in them, for a song of mine, was and still is really special for me. Fun fact… it was like 40 something degrees when we were filming, so if I look cold it’s because I was indeed cold, haha.”

Pageants (the Long Beach, CA-based duo of partners and bandmates Rebecca Coleman and Devin O’Brien) today shared their bright, buoyant new single “Where Did The Time Go” off their forthcoming LP Sun and Settled Days, out July 30th, alongside a self-directed video that showcases their lighthearted and resilient spirit, as well as their deep connection to Southern California. “Rebecca and I were born and raised in Long Beach so this video is kind of our ode to the city,” explains O’Brien. “It’s impossible to keep track of all of our shared moments but we felt like creating a sun soaked capsule–lost in lackadaisical bliss–to speak for lost time and days well spent.” Coleman says the track’s lyrics “recall fleeting memories of the sense of aimlessness I was feeling in the years after touring as a teenager in the early 00’s. I felt stuck in a lot of ways. Influenced by the promise of an up-and-coming band and an ailing industry, I felt pressure to catapult my music career to the next level but found myself struggling to cope. It’s about feeling so close to something you want so badly, but it’s just out of reach. It’s about breaking free from the grip of past trauma and coming out on the other side with a fresh perspective.”
