New members of the Solid State family The Ongoing Concept released behind-the-scenes footage of their music video for “Cover Girl,” as well as speak to a bit about what originality means to them.

Going into a video like this, you don’t really know what to expect. … The whole premise of the song is being original — not necessarily 100 percent original, no one is 100 percent original — we’re definitely not. We want people to create and have new ideas and be original and do things from themselves rather than someone else.

Check it out below, and be sure to watch the original music video on HM.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country.
