Ben Sollee has always had a special relationship with bicycles. In 2010, he embarked on the “Ditch the Van” tour. During that excursion, Ben and his band abandoned the comforts of an automobile and hauled their gear and instruments cross the country on bikes. The fascination with these pedaling machines continues in L. C. Crowley’s video for “Close To You.” Sollee jumps on an old-fashioned bicycle in a studio, riding along as people walk by with card board cutouts of trees, rocks, and other things you might see along the road. He’s not moving here, but the scenery’s got some speed!
