Jon Pardi floats through the haze of lust while dreaming on the beach throughout the music video for his current single, “Heartache on the Dance Floor.”
Set along the sunny shores of the California coastline, Pardi falls asleep in the sand and imagines a romantic night with an unknown mystery girl. Working up the courage to dance closely throughout the night at a beachside bar, Pardi and his lucky lady romanticize the sweetest moments of love: staring at the stars as the tide rolls in and creates peace between the two.
“Shooting the video for ‘Heartache on the Dance Floor’ was awesome. We were out in Venice Beach, California. There’s a lot of crazy people out there [laughs], but it was a lot of fun. It was beautiful. It was great weather, and we got to explain the story of ‘Heartache on the Dance Floor,’ and it’s kind of a dream sequence where you kinda fall asleep where you dream about the girl on the dance floor and the party. It’s a lot of fun, and there’s a lot of cool coloring in there, a really cool car I drive around,” Pardi said about the video recently.
Highlighting the vibrant hues plastered through the lanes of Venice Beach, Pardi and his director wanted to capture the liveliness of the West Coast theme strung along throughout the lyric. While Pardi doesn’t trade his cowboy boots for a surfboard, he still embodies that California spirit thanks to the treatment of the passion-filled video.
“It’s a different video, but it’s kind of grungy in a way and it’s really beachy, kinda cool California style, so that’s why I was really excited about it. Carlos Ruiz, Carlos, Carlos Ruiz – he is from Colombia – he did the ‘Dirt on My Boots’ video and he also did this one. We work really good together. We’re buddies, and it’s been fun,” he explained.
“Heartache on the Dance Floor” is Jon Pardi’s third single off his album, California Sunrise, which is out now. Pardi is also traveling all summer long for Dierks Bentley’s What the Hell Tour and fans can find more details about the tour on his website.
