Video Premiere: Mike Mentz “Someday"

Chicagoan Mike Mentz is on a mission to personally share his music with the world. He is constantly touring and currently has dates lined up in India, Guatemala, Peru and Puerto Rico.

He recently returned home to create a video for his song “Someday”. It is a creative timelapse video, and utilizes our city as a backdrop. We recently got a chance to asked Mike about the video: "We shot the video for Someday almost entirely in timelapse. I wanted the world to literally fly by this guy while he stared at a screen. My sweet home Chicago provided some super vibrant timelapse backdrops. A River North apartment in the sky, walking the Theatre District, Viagra Triangle from above, and Lake Shore Drive all made for wildly cool cinematic playgrounds."

You can catch Mike at Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) on December 16th.

Deeper embarks on a Fall Tour today that is sure to bring them increased attention on the East Coast. The band, consisting of Shiraz Bhatti, Mike Clawson, Nic Gohl, and Drew McBride, released a locally praised single, “Transmogrified”, via Fire Talk in May 2016. Since that time they have become entrench in the Chicago DIY scene and are poised to take New York by storm. You can find the full tour schedule here. ;
