Much has been made over the past decade or so over the Boston area becoming Hollywood East. While much of that praise , or blame, depending on your vantage point, has to do with the Ben Afflecks and Mark Wahlbergs of the world, pop music upstart Molly Reinold is lending her own vision.
In her video for “Movies”, which we are premiering today on Vanyaland, Reinold takes her slinky, seductive alt-pop/R&B track — about a girl who dreams of a fairytale ending, only to realize the real world often creates its own life narrative — and sets it against the Boston skyline. Scenes were filmed around Cambridge, like at the Lynch Family Skatepark underneath the ramps to the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge, and inside the colorful “Graffiti Alley” in Central Square, which sets the backdrop for choreographed dancers Kaylee “Impavido” Millis (“The Pulse”) and Brandon Olegario.
“Boston is my city and I really wanted to capture that,” says Reinold. “I am a dreamer and a romantic. That’s the basis of why I wrote the song… I have been surrounded and embraced by such incredibly talented people. I couldn’t be happier with outcome of the video.”
