Sam Roberts Band’s latest music video for Shapeshifters was shot in various places around New York and highlights both the diverse culture of the city as well as that glorious Sam Roberts beard, all in one wonderfully-shot video. This is only one of the many reasons why it’s nominated for Best Rock/Alternative Video Of The Year as well as the MUCHFact Video Of The Year.
4. We’re All In This Together
This clip combines behind-the-scenes footage of the band in the recording studio as well as kaleidoscopic visuals, which have truly earned them their nomination for Post-Production Video Of The Year this year.
3. Detroit ’67
Paying homage to the city that gave us Motown, Sam Roberts Band shot their video for Detroit ’67 in the real place, showing off the rich history of the famed city south of the border.
2. Bridge To Nowhere
Sam Roberts Band’s futuristic clip for Bridge To Nowhere is unlike anything the band has done, relying more on a computerized environment than real settings. The result, though, is a masterful black and white video that accompany the song beautifully.
1. Brother Down
The quintessential Sam Roberts Band video. This debut single and music video garnered the band two MMVA nominations and one win for Best VideoFACT in 2003.
