WATCH: Band Releases First Music Video Made Using Instagram
UK indie-rockers, the Vaccines, recently released a new music video for their single "Wetsuit" -- made almost entirely from photos fans submitted through Instagram, an iPhone app that lets you share photos.
“We always talk about breaking down the barriers between the band and the fans,” said Justin Young, lead singer. “We like sharing music with them, meeting them, interacting with them, as most bands do. So this felt like the ultimate interaction. Instagram was suggested to give photos taken on people’s phone a nice warm feel.”
Nearly 3,000 photos came in from all over the world (fans used the tag #vaccinesvideo). A director then picked the best and turned it into the below video. Watch and let us know your thoughts -- we think the song is super catchy!
