Matt Ellis & Paul Chesne Music Video
Venice, California; Matt Ellis & Paul Chesne are set to release a new single, together. The duet, titled “They Don’t Make ‘em Like They Used To”, will be available online everywhere Thursday October 27th.
“They Don’t Make ‘em Like They Used To” is a slice of classic Americana. Lush pedal steel and electric guitar licks carry the listener through a contentious lyric as the pair call out the fading legacy of Music’s elite. The infectious melody is a sugar coating to a deeper truth both Ellis & Chesne stand by.
“The losses we’ve experienced in recent years highlight the original inspiration for the track. I mean who’s there to fill the void left by Prince, B.B. King, David Bowie and Merle Haggard?” adds Ellis.
The Digital Single is accompanied by this Music Video, Shot, Directed and Edited by Daniel Elkayam (Blitzen Trapper). The Video toys with the song’s meaning, turning Ellis and Chesne into a pair of D.I.Y. Mad Scientists, hell-bent on creating the perfect pop star. Shot in Matt’s garage, the clip is perfect for this Halloween Season and is available now via YouTube.
