Video: Caricature – Take Me Home Tonight Cover, Drone Camera Video

 

Caricature video still

Progressive metallers Caricature have released a music video for their cover of 80s classic rock hit ‘Take Me Home Tonight’ by Eddie Money. You can see the video at this link or below:

The accompanying music video features stunning aerial camera footage of Chicago created especially for this clip by noted drone technology innovator and cinematographer Kirk Tindel. The video is a stunning love letter to the skyline of Chicago.

Caricature’s Joseph Spiller comments:

“Sometimes, when you make a record that you need to be as perfect as possible, you have to step back, take a break, and stretch your creative legs on something fun. Rather than smash up the studio, channeling the magic of “The Money Man” seemed more productive. The hook on this song is iron clad with one of the best second verses the mainstream has ever seen. I wanted to add something fresh to the arrangement without degrading the original piece, and the end result is fun as heck to play. Squad”
