The clip was filmed by Travis Suttie and edited by Travis and James Dominko, and it takes on a very DIY approach. Matching the sentimental vibes of the track itself, it sees the band performing while nostalgic home videos play on the newspaper covered walls surrounding them.

Elevator Song is available to stream now. You can also catch all their upcoming tour dates right here.
