The evening begins and you're with your friends drinking to get drunk. The mood quickly transitions from a stiff shuffling to loose laughter, and as people begin to arrive the rhythm of the night really kicks in. You're the king of the party and a red Solo cup is your chalice, but drinking is about the rise and the fall, and before you know it you're on the floor clinging to the toilet. Most of the time blackouts end there, but then there are those nights you turn into a vampire and stumble off to hunt down your ex.
Directed by Columbia film student Sam Piland, the music video for Vaughn PM's "Don't Fail Us / The Stories" succeeds in capturing the transition from a funky bounce to a warm, downtempo stagger. According to the Piland the video "explores both sides of the bottle - drinking until you can't see the bottom, and drinking until you can't see yourself anymore."
