Canadian Premiere: The Barr Brothers – “Love Ain’t Enough”

The Barr Brothers get crafty in their new video for "Love Ain't Enough"

The Barr Brothers released their soul-filled new record Sleeping Operator last year on October 6. Since then they’ve been touring heavily but if you missed them opening up for Bahamas back in November, you’ll have the chance to see them this time around at Lee’s Palace in March.

The band recently collaborated with director Dustin on a brand new video for “Love Ain’t Enough”. Here is a quote from the filmmaker:

Whenever I start working on a music video I sit and listen to the song, who knows how many times, and begin to pull visuals out of the rhythms, melodies, and lyrics. After listening to ‘Love Ain’t Enough’ just a few times I really had this sense that it was a journey and I was traveling into a city or countryside that was unfamiliar, but in a peaceful, confident way, not a fearful way.

The actual making of the video was 50 cutouts from 6×6′ sheets of cardboard and multiple stop-motion chalkboard drawings. I’ve had a pile of cardboard here at the studio and was desperately wanting to use it for a project. After talking to Brad he said we should experiment and that the only requirement was to have fun.
