...music video?, originally comprised of songwriter Paul Jenkins and producer Wes McCanse, was formed in Tucson, Arizona. In 2004, they released their first album; fireproof your tv, which won runner-up for Album of the Year at Tucson Weekly. They followed with 2007's now that my tv has wings i'll never be lonely. In 2009, the duo became a trio, teaming up with multi-instrumentalist and long-time friend, Justin Miller.
With influences drawing from electronic music, pop, and rock ...music video?'s full sound has been compared to such acts as Air, The Flaming Lips, M83 and The Postal Service. As an unofficial act at SXSW in 2008, the band caught the attention of NPR's music producer Robin Hilton, who would soon feature them on their program, Second Stage. The following year, the band received an official SXSW showcase.
...music video? has consistently been recognized by Tucson Weekly as their city's best electronic act. Such local support, along with a widespread Internet fan base, continues to help their audience grow.
Striving to blur the line that separates noise from pop, ...music video? are convinced they could become the next big thing, if they could simply get one of their songs into Zach Braff's next movie.
The band is currently writing and recording their highly anticipated third LP.
