Long Neck – “Elizabeth” Video

Anyone who grew up in New Jersey will tell you that it’s the place of urban legend. There’s always something in the woods. There’s abandoned amusement parks, hospitals. There’s that long, windy road where if you cruise down it with your headlights off, a demon will appear right as you crest the top of the hill. All of New Jersey’s oddities even spawned a popular magazine series, Weird NJ, which kicked off a franchise about folklore throughout the whole United States.

New Jersey’s weirdness also served as the inspiration for Long Neck’s new music video for “Elizabeth,” a song off the Band To Watch’s debut album Will This Do?. It was directed by Lily Mastrodimos’ sister, Ruby, and it finds Mastrodimos on a bleary, late-night ride through Jersey as scary urban legends pop out of the woods. Eventually, she joins them in the forest to play out the rest of the song, and wakes up in a parked car the morning after, unsure if she was just dreaming or if monsters really do exist.

Watch below, and check out the band’s extensive upcoming tour dates with Fern Mayo.
