Leaky Basement: Higher Education

October 14, 2018

Higher Education just released the official music video for their song "Leaky Basement" off their 4th independent album "Gift Called Life". We had the pleasure of directing and producing the video. This was actually shot last December in Baltimore, MD. We utilized Wright Was Studios; where the band has recorded all 4 of their albums, to record some scenes and the rest was shot around the Baltimore Harbor. I also included some shots from some of the bands bigger shows in 2017. 

 

"Leaky Basement" was written by Petey Devaney, so naturally he was the main subject of the music video. I wanted to portray how the life of being in a band and spotlight can take a toll on one's personal life. The lyrics

                                                  "Made something out of nothing

                                                    But it happened way too fast

                                                   Could of told you this was coming

                                                  That it wasn’t built to last

                                                  I lost the one I loved for a taste of

                                                 The spotlight, the money, the drugs

                                                 But it's not the life that i thought that it was

                                                 This rhythm keeps me moving, But i can't quite keep up

                                                 Lately i've been feeling restless

                                                Never would've guessed, How much I had invested"

really summarize the whole video and theme of the song. I think this can relate to just about any artist, performer, entrepreneur; etc because we have all had these same feelings or a similar experience when chasing our goals.

"Leaky Basement" Lyrics:

 

When we’re together

It makes me better

I told her in a song

When she wrote me in a letter

Cause I find it hard to say

Back of my mind,

that’s where it stays

Cause if i’d fall, Id fall for you

Say you got the blues,

well I got em too

Together we can get high

Make love and watch the sunrise

She left me on the shelf, for someone else

Oh she left me for some guy who never really knew himself

 

In a Leaky Basement, we made our dreams come true

Before I made it, before we made it

You were by my side pigeoned hold me in a lie

Back when they gave me no respect

Back when they said the music a die

Back in forth, indecision takes its course

Yes I burned a lot of bridges

Yet i feel no remorse, Go!

 

No matter how many drugs I take

It all remains the same

All these things in your life you want to change

But with this life i choose

I hope i never lose

Sight of what i’ve come to be

 

Made, something out of nothing

But it happened way too fast

Could of told you this was coming

That it wasn’t built to last

I lost the one I loved for a taste of

The spotlight, the money, the drugs

But it's not the life that i thought that it was

This rhythm keeps me moving,

But i can't quite keep up

Lately i've been feeling restless

Never would've guessed

How much I had invested

 

Shoot it, pop it, snort it,but the pain won't go away

The road of self destruction Is next to nothing

Shoot it, pop it, snort it,but the pain won't go away

The road of self destruction Is next to nothing

 

No matter how many drugs I take

It all remains the same

All these things in your life you want to change

But with this life i choose

I hope i never lose

Sight of what i’ve come to be

 

I made something out of nothing

Could of told you this was coming

And I lost the one I loveFor a taste of the spotlight, the money, the drugs

 

No matter how many drugs I take

It all remains the same

All these things in your life you want to change

But with this life i chooseI hope i never lose

Sight of what i’ve come to be"
