Since 2009, NPR has been a big proponent of Hey Marseilles' chamber pop, highlighting the Seattle band's KEXP in-studio as a Favorite Session. That love has continued well into 2010, featuring "Rio" as a Song of the Day this summer and now recording a Tiny Desk Concert with Hey Marseilles. The 12-minute video shows the seven-piece outfit crammed into a tiny office while performing "Rio," "From A Terrace," and "To Travels And Trunks."
If you like your Hey Marseilles videos with more spacious scenery, check out the new one for the band is currently working on a new video for "Cigarettes" shot during their summer tour. Directed by Seattle photographer Hayley Young, the video features individual members performing the song on city streets, on farmland, and in churches. The video will be live later this fall.
