Spin Premieres Exray's New 'Hesitation' Video!
"Hesitation" is one amazing mind-flip of a video: The clip lays out trippy, intergalactic visual effects on top of footage of Cold War-era PSAs, when American fears about nuclear attack were at a fever pitch.
Exray's member Michael Falsetto-Mapp (who directed and edited the video) says that sort of cultural paranoia still has resonance in today's era of constant social networking. "I started thinking about the whole idea of societal pressure and I gravitated toward a '50s theme with the found footage I was collecting," he says. "In my opinion, that era has a kind of absurd beauty that fits the song well. The expressions and mannerisms of people from that time were ripe with opportunity. Also, the video could play like a surreal news broadcast about a day in the life of our own indecision and hesitation."
