Music Video Premiere: Sondre Lerche's "Bad Law"



Watch the video on Rolling Stone's site.

The video, shot in Lerche's actual backyard with director Evan Savitt, was based on real events. He tells Rolling Stone: "On a godforsaken night last year, I was out with some new friends, and I thought I was the life of the party until somebody came up to me and told me I might as well just leave if I was going to ruin it for everyone. I had been dancing intensely and merrily while tearing down decorations and streamers all night. But then, I had apparently started trying to tear off pipes and parts of the interior of the actual building. I was that guy, which took me by surprise because I hadn't even been drinking that much, and I usually can read my surroundings pretty well."

Lerche releases his new album Please on September 23rd and you can catch him on tour across the US this fall.
