Happy Valentines Day from us here at The Label!


On the eve of this special occasion, our pals The Lemon Twigs created something very sweet with their friend Nick Roney, who directed this beauty of a music video before your eyes, feat. Nick’s grandparents. “I Wanna Prove To You” comes from the band’s debut album Do Hollywood, out now on 4AD.

“The song is about proving your love which is something I can’t really fathom. But I figured my grandparents knew something about it because they had been married for 50-years, so their relationship seemed to make an appropriate backdrop for the video. Overall the experience was heartbreaking for me but I wish The Lemon Twigs and my grandparents the best and hold no ill-will against them.” Nick Roney, Director

“We had a great time getting to know Nick’s grandparents. They’re great people and we really liked talking to them about music and the values that made their marriage so successful.” The Lemon Twigs
