The song & video accompany a new comic retelling of the Peter Pan story also called “NVRLND.”
451 Media Group is putting a modern young Hollywood spin on a classic tale with the creation of their music-centered comic NVRLND. The comic tells the story of Peter Pan as the lead singer of a rock band — appropriately called the Lost Boys — who frequent a secret underground club called NVRLND.
With music at the forefront of the reimagined storyline, Dylan Mulick — who also co-wrote the comic — directed a music video that follows the aesthetic and mood behind the story. The music video, premiering exclusively on Billboard, features the song “NVRLND” by indie rock band The Raveonettes.
The single by The Raveonettes was written exclusively for the comic, which was released Wednesday (Aug. 10). The video further captures the idea behind the club set in the comic, being filmed at L.A. punk-rock venue The Smell.
