Using Pink Floyd and The Wizard of Oz Folklore as a Backdrop, Goodnight Moonshine Pulls Back the Curtain on Newlywed Life and Showcases the Drama Between a Husband and Wife in Disquieting Video for ‘Dark Side of the Rainbow’
(Published: April 09, 2015)



Using Pink Floyd and The Wizard of Oz Folklore as a Backdrop, Goodnight Moonshine Pulls Back the Curtain on Newlywed Life and Showcases the Drama Between a Husband and Wife in Disquieting Video for ‘Dark Side of the Rainbow'

Featuring Red Molly's Molly Venter and Roosevelt Dime's Eben Pariser, the Duo Describes the Project as "The Great Reveal; An Urban Legend and a New Marriage Undressed"

Video is Exclusively Premiered via Huffington Post



Featuring Red Molly's Molly Venter and Roosevelt Dime's Eben Pariser, the duo Goodnight Moonshine delivers a tense look behind the curtain of newlywed life in their new video ‘Dark Side of the Rainbow'. It's a place where optimism and regret battle one another, set against the backdrop of a haunting song (a mash-up of Pink Floyd's ‘Time' with the classic ‘Over the Rainbow'). With a sad directness that recalls ‪Gotye's ‘Somebody That I Used To Know', Pariser and Venter manage to capture a disquieting intimacy.


Pariser and Venter talk about the mashup in a Huffington Post Exclusive Video Premiere:
GOODNIGHT MOONSHINE'S "DARK SIDE OF THE RAINBOW" MASHES PINK FLOYD WITH THE WIZARD OF OZ
4/7/2015, By Mike Ragogna

According to Eben Pariser...
"The whole thing emerged from the 90s phenomenon of syncing The Wizard of Oz movie to the Dark Side of the Moon album, and all the speculation that the coincidences were way too precise for Pink Floyd to not be in on it, especially since they were making movie soundtracks at the time. When I was 16 (after allegedly indulging in the stoner-sport of syncing the film to the album,) I spontaneously realized that 'Time' was in fact a perfect reharmonization of 'Over The Rainbow'--but it took me 16 more years to find the right vehicle to record and perform the mashup, in my lovely wife Molly and our collaboration, Goodnight Moonshine.'"

According to Molly Venter...
"We set out wanting to convince people that Pink Floyd intentionally synched the album to The Wizard of Oz. During the filming, we realized how closely the 2 sets of lyrics paralleled the different sides of a longstanding philosophical argument we'd been having; Venter believing that much in life is out of one's control and that we must remain hopeful and optimistic, Pariser believing more in the power of individual will and action, and that missed opportunities are one's own fault. Through the taping we recognized we were each trying to convince the other of our own life perspective. The video captures how painful that endeavor is. We're a newlywed couple, letting you in on our life together through our music. All the good stuff, but also the dark stuff, challenging stuff--the stuff that often goes unsaid. No kitsch. And largely positive and healing through the revelation that we are at the core, just normal folks trying to make a marriage work. A positive loving relationship, and a deeply artistic and somewhat daring one."

Many conflicts within a marriage have no winners - arguments rise and fall and are swept aside, or are integrated into the fabric of the relationship. This new video captures that simmering frustration, as Venter and Pariser talk ‘over one-another' and express their opposing viewpoints through song, in spite of the other person's protest. Using the urban legend/folklore of the ‘Dark Side of Oz', Pariser and Venter give the legend a contemporary twist.

For Venter and Pariser, the video (directed by PBS documentary producer Julie Marchesi,) and the Goodnight Moonshine partnership reflect their desire to create intelligent art through an honest reveal of their full, complex, ​and now married life. Along the way, the duo evokes the spirit of The Bird and the Bee in terms of their overlapping roles as husband and wife as well as artistic collaborators.
