Gravity was shot in HD with a Canon 5D MKII in and around downtown Phoenix. Shots were using available light between ISO 1200 to 5000 and features the memorable spaces that dot the Phoenician landscape, including the months’ old light rail system, Civic Space Park, Phoenix Art Museum and the Clarendon Hotel.
The project is the second collaboration for the band and photographer after shooting their album cover. For this project, the lyrics and visuals work in chorus, using the metaphor of gravity to illustrate the isolation, anonymity and stresses of modern city living.
