We are really excited about a couple new videos that are being made concurrently. One is still being developed and we're hoping we can secure some grant money to finish it, and the other is almost ready for airing. So, rather than tease you with details about the former (we will admit it's for our song Best Tonight), we shall let out some information about that latter video: Glasgow (live @FoxCabaret).
A few weeks back Isabelle and I were
going through some of our new ideas and I came across a folder
containing footage from a live show we had performed at the Fox
Cabaret. When we had a look at it we were both really impressed with
how great the raw footage was! Big thanks once again to Benn McGuire
and Mike Love for their great camera work, it was a real treat to rediscover it.
We'd performed a short opening set that night,
only five songs, and Glasgow was right in the middle of the set. I
was inspired enough to take on the task of cutting a new live clip of
the song and have almost got it completed now. It took a lot more work
than I'd anticipated as I decided to attempt to learn a few tricks in
After Effects to clean up a couple things, as well as create a few more
interesting effects for the clip too. (Thank you to all the wonderful
people on Youtube who upload tutorials - I would be completely lost
without your help).
thing I truly enjoyed about this project was working on the live
arrangement of the song. After three years of hearing the original
Crumbling Hearts EP version it's kinda cool to listen to this live
arrangement. It starts with a different drum beat and has a lot more
keyboards than the Crumbling Hearts version (due to the fact that we have been
performing it as a duo these past couple years). The Live @FoxCabaret
version seems a bit more trippy than the original and hopefully even
more dancey too. We'll leave that up to you to decide.
It will be completed and airing next week, March 7th, so please stay in touch and have a look /listen for it when it's live.
Cheers! and here's to a happy spring for all.
Mark and Isabelle
