Throwback HIP Spotlight: Jet Lag Gemini

Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of meeting up with some of our cherished clients to film a video interview that helps viewers get to know the artist as well as learn more about their new music video. Previously called “The HIP Clip”, these videos allow us to help connect artists with the world, as we give some insight and inside information into who they are and the music and videos they make.

New Jersey has been home to countless great artists over the years, and among them one of our favorites was Jet Lag Gemini, who called Mahwah their home (although vocalist/guitarist Misha Zilman is from Russia, and brothers Matei and Vlad Gheorghiu are from Romania). They played their first show on March 27, 2004, releasing their first EP Business in 2005. Their “Run This City” video was the 500th video HIP promoted in November 2007, as their album Fire The Cannons (Doghouse Records) was making waves on college campuses and in the scene across the country. We met up with them early in 2008 to film this HIP Clip video interview, where they told us about the concept of the “Run This City” video, the fun they had shooting at Astor Place in New York, and making songs that sound just as good live as they do recorded. Watch it below!
