Brooklyn band The Lone Bellow released their stunning new music video via Entertainment Weekly today. Virginia Madsen stars in the piece for the band’s song “Fake Roses” about lead singer Zach Williams mother-in-law Edna. Williams tells EW, ” Edna was the first single mother that I ever met. I remember walking up and the lawn was super un-kept and I’m this 15-year-old boy who bush hogged fields, so it was weird to me. Then I walked into their house and a lot of the lights were off and that was even weird, I just thought, ‘Man, this is crazy.’ And then I med Edna, and she is just this sweet sweet soul. She was a nurse and started working days and nights when she and her husband split.” The video was shot in Williams’ hometown of Lafayette, Georgia in his mother-in-law’s home and other various childhood haunts. Madesen gives a powerful portrayal of the loneliness and pressure a single-mother has to endure.
