Four Eyes, Burns Like Fire Win at Sprockets

Four Eyes’ “Our Insides”

The Sprockets International Music Video Festival took place last weekend at the 40 Watt Club and Melting Point, and two local bands took home trophies. 

The Audience Choice Award went to Four Eyes’ “Our Insides,” directed by Matthew MacCarthy. (You might recall Flagpole premiered that video back in January.) The Best Georgia Video award went to punk band Burns Like Fire, for its “Jean Shorts” clip, directed by Jason Wilson.

Meanwhile, the Best Music Video award went to London-based electro duo The Correspondents’ “Fear and Delight,” directed by Naren Wilks.
