MTVU premieres new Eisley video for “Smarter”

Eisley’s music video for “Smarter,” the first single from their new album The Valley, premieres today on mtvU and online at The video was filmed near the band’s hometown of Tyler, Texas, and directed by photographer Chris Phelps, who shot all of Eisley’s packaging and publicity photos for The Valley as well as other artists including MGMT, Panic! At The Disco, B.o.B. and Travie McCoy. Watch the video HERE.

“Smarter” has received nationwide radio support while spending nine consecutive weeks on the FMQB Triple A top 200 radio charts. “Smarter” also spent six weeks on the FMQB Submodern top 200 chart, peaking at #25, with spins and support from KROQ/Los Angeles, KDGE/Dallas, WEDG/Buffalo, KBZT/San Diego, KFMA/Tucson, WRMR/Wilimington, WCNR/Charlottesville, WCYY/Portland and more. Says Josh Venable of KYSR/Los Angeles and KDGE/Dallas, “Comparisons to Kate Bush and her 2000’s counterpart Florence and The Machine are fine by me. This is the Eisley album we’ve been waiting for since the beginning. Don’t wait. This is the future.”
