The Lemon Twigs – “I Wanna Prove To You” Video

Long Island brothers Brian and Michael D’Addario recently put out Do Hollywood, their debut album under the name the Lemon Twigs. We’ve already seen their video for lead single “These Words,” and now they’ve shared another one for “I Wanna Prove To You.” The clip finds director Nick Roney exploring the concept of love by bringing the Lemon Twigs to his real-life grandparents’ house in Utah. As it turns out, the brothers get along a little too well with his grandparents. As Roney explains:

The song is about proving your love which is something I can’t really fathom because of how generally self-centered I am. But I figured my grandparents knew something about it because they had been married for 50-years, so their relationship seemed to make an appropriate backdrop for the video. Overall the experience was heartbreaking for me and I never would have imagined that things would have gone south as they did. Now that my wounds have sort of healed, I wish the Lemon Twigs and my grandparents the best and hold no ill-will against them. My aunt recently told me that the adoption process is underway, which I guess could make for a lively Thanksgiving.
