Exclusive Premiere: Early Morning Rebel “Find An Easier Way”

Early Morning Rebel hasn’t been a band for that long. In fact, in their current iteration the group has only been together for a year, but this doesn’t mean that they lack any of the spit and polish of bands that have been together a lot longer. In fact, Early Morning Rebel has enough shine on them to teach their elders a thing or two about how to make it in the music industry.

The band was formed by high school best friends vocalist Nathan Blumenfeld-Jones and guitarist Dustin Bath who decided to merge their love of music with their other loves: art and fashion. They used their connections (and their gumption) to immerse themselves in the fashion world. “We really wanted to create a community with designers and artists and filmmakers and photographer and to really collaborate with them with the intention of creating music and inspire other artists and have art inspire our work,” Blumenfeld-James told CBS News.

Once the fashion world deemed them cool, their rapid-fire rise to success was practically guaranteed. Soon Early Morning Rebel found their song “Lifeboat” being used on “Grey’s Anatomy” and now a full-length album and tour are in the works.

Despite their musical success, the band hasn’t lost any of their love for art and fashion. To that end, the band makes their own music videos, including the one we are premiering today. “We produce, direct and edit all of our videos. Putting a visual to the music is a process we enjoy almost as much as creating the music. The basic plot of this video is a guy losing a girl and fighting to get her back. Not being able to let that person go. We shot the video in Venice, Ca, where we are from. We wanted to use imagery and aesthetic of our native Los Angeles,” Blumenfeld-James told us via email. The video is the perfect reflection of the story behind the song. “Originally, when I wrote that song, it was about finding an easier way to deal with the fact that I can’t let this girl, this person, go. It’s a pretty quintessential love song. It’s a heartbreak song at the end of the day where I’m holding on to this thing that I’m not going to be able to let go, ” Nathan Blumenfeld-Jones told the Huffington Post. Nothing like being lovelorn to inspire a song.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
