"Public access television was a pretty big part of my life throughout most of the 1990s. It was kind of like our own YouTube back then! I recently found a mint condition VHS camcorder of the same kind that I used to use in those days. It gave me the idea that it might be fun to try and make something in the style of what was going on around that time. AS IF BY FATE, Matt from Alexis contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in doing a video for the band!

This story is inspired by one of the local “celebrities” that frequented our channel. I wanted it to be funny yet still have some heart. It also seemed like it could fit well with the retro dance vibe of the music of Alexis.

Thanks Alexis, Joshua Burge, Joel Swierenga, Chris Kotcher, GRTV, Pyramid Scheme Bar, Wealthy Theatre and everyone else for believing in this enough to make it happen! Hope everyone enjoys it!"

“I’ve known Geoff for a long time and have always appreciated his brand. We’d worked together before on a few projects so he was a really natural fit for this one.

As highly animated live performers, Dan and I have done a few videos with us taking front and center. We wanted to try something different this time. Cue old friend and fellow musician turned big time actor, Joshua Burge. He put in a fantastic performance during a break between other projects.

Absolutely huge thanks to everyone involved!”

Love or Temptation - Available now!

Kiss and Tell - Local Spins - Exclusive


Consider it another Alexis instant classic.

To celebrate the kickoff of the new "Local Spins on WYCE" radio show which launches at 11 a.m. today on WYCE-FM (88.1), Local Spins exclusively premieres the Grand Rapids electro-pop duo's latest video, "Kiss and Tell," representing the first single from the group's next album, "Love or Temptation," which will be released digitally and globally on Oct. 7.

I'll debut the single on radio during the "Local Spins on WYCE" broadcast (which will also feature in-studio performances by Grand Rapids singer-songwriter Lucas Wilson and Hannaniah Whitley).

The Alexis video reconnects the duo of Matthew Forbush and Dan Hurst with director Ryan Lieske and cinematographer Craig Harmer, who produced Alexis' wild 2012 video for "Fantastic Magic."

"The track has a '90s dance feel to it, so we tried to kind of go with the look of more of a '90s grunge video just to shake that up," he adds. "I think everybody did a great job making it sexy and fun and just a little over the top."

Over the top, indeed. And here it is. Get more info about Alexis and the upcoming album at musicofalexis.com.
