Meg & Dia Team Up With OMG Everywhere In Student Directed Video For "Teenagers"

originally published: 08/31/2019

Meg & Dia Team Up With OMG Everywhere In Student Directed Video For "Teenagers"(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Meg & Dia's student directed music video for "Teenagers" was released on August 29th. The band teamed up with OMG Everywhere, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that hosts a series of free, week-long film workshops for kids in Los Angeles. Their goal was to provide young students with an opportunity to experiment creatively and develop new skills through collaboration with artists. 

On the video, Meg explains, "Before we filmed our video with OMG cameras, I figured it would be a fun experience working with kids and a nice thing to do for the community. I came away from that experience with a completely new perspective on creativity and mine and Dia's professional career.

"The kids taught me to remember that the reason we make music is to play and have a good time, and the kids also taught me not to take every aspect of the industry so seriously. They taught me to have a "why not" mindset more often. Why not? Why not create a world where we are running through a maze of peanut butter and jelly? Why not dance with neon glow sticks in ski jumpsuits?"

"Teenagers" is taken from the surprise new album happysad, which is available everywhere now. The song has become a fan favorite and one of the album's stand out tracks.  happysad is an album that neither of them thought they'd ever make, but after going their separate ways and finding what makes them each unique, Meg and Dia have come together again to make the most refined and collaborative record of their career. It finds their friendship rekindled, their creative spark reignited and their musical horizons expanded.  

While in the past, Meg and Dia would take turns to write individual songs on albums, their efforts on 'happysad' were much more collaborative. It means these 10 songs are a blend of Meg and Dia's two distinct yet compatible personalities - songs which show how in tune they are with each other but also how different they both are. At its core, however, is a fragility and vulnerability shared by both of them, but which they hope can help others who may feel similar.
