Yesterday, the young rising Washington, D.C. rock band One Way Out released their third music video for "Liquid Paradise," which was filmed at Washington D.C.'s DC9 concert. The live video captures the rawness of the band’s live performance. The song was the band's opening act during their Euphoria and Music festivals in 2022. The band thrashes and tears their way through this song in order to set the pace for the rest of the set.
The video opens with drummer Geist Topping laying into the first fill before the band comes in and guitarist Jake Schaefer forcefully emerges from out of frame. The drop immediately submerges you into the high-octane music that fills the rest of One Way Out's set.
“We love opening with that song because it just goes from 0 to 100,” says Schaefer. “It feels like a splash of cold water in the face, it just gets us in the zone we need to be in to be amped up for a show, and hopefully it does the same for the crowd.” The video was done with longtime collaborator Carter Louthian, immersing the viewer in the performance with a single camera on the stage. This approach only adds to the raw, unhinged, real nature of the performance, directing the viewer's focus from only one of the rapidly moving parts onstage to another.
One Way Out is a rising rock band from Washington, D.C. known for their eclectic style; a meld of classic and blues-inspired late '60s and early '70s rock with progressive elements inspired by metal, hard rock, and jazz. The band also takes on the aggression of punk emanating from the local D.C. scene and the philosophies of more modern acts, such as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Oh Sees, and Tame Impala, to name a few.
