Alexander Craig — “Atmosphere We’re Under”
Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of Alexander Craig’s song “Atmosphere We’re Under,” from his recently released self-titled 45. On the 45, all songs were written and arranged with instruments and backing vocals by Alexander C. Larson. It was mixed by Alexander C. Larson and Jeremy Johnson; recorded and engineered by Jeremy Johnson; and produced by Alexander C. Larson.
The video was written, edited, directed and produced by Alexander Craig. It’s alluring nature footage and bright humans in city footage leading into scenes of strife, all interwoven with Craig on electric guitar. The video is a captivating short of the wide ranging variations of the collective human experience, and Alexander Craig is adept at putting the human experience to song.
This video was created with a world view mindset. I wanted to capture the feeling of our experience on this planet to complement the structure of the lyrics and the main idea of the song. The imagery paints a picture of the progression of humanity and technology along the way. I also tried to bridge different cultures and environments to further meld the idea that no matter where you are you’re living under the same atmosphere as all the living things. — Alexander Craig
