video premiere: brick + mortar “train”

    inspired by your favorite cult films

    by · July 08, 2015

    Whether you’ve experienced an intense, all-consuming love affair yourself, or fulfill your romantic needs vicariously via film, indie duo Brick + Mortar’s new video will have you reliving your most intense, amorous memories. Directed by Caitlin Smith, the “Train” music video meticulously revisits iconic scenes from 16 cult films in under four minutes. Echoing the song’s theatrical lyrics and high-energy instrumentals, artist and model Brittany Markert and model John Hein run around New York, building off of the idea of “star-crossed lovers.” In Smith’s words, it’s “an epic ode to amour.”
