Rock Sound is really rather excited to be bringing you the first play of the brand new Deaf Havana video on your Friday afternoon!
Deaf Havana's new song 'Smiles All Round' is, quite frankly, a belter and RS is beyond stoked to be showing you the video for the track first!
Before we show you the clip singer and guitarist James Veck-Gilodi just wants to say a few things. James, over to you...
Greetings Rock Sound!
James here; just thought I'd write a few words on the song, video and whats going on in our world.
Firstly we wanted to go for something slightly different with the clip. A huge portion of the music videos in our genre that I see today are plain and repetitive, and for the most part, all look the same. We wanted to create something more natural and representative of us, which has led to this video having no performance at all, a slightly different concept but one that we feel carries the song, and our new sound.
The song's lyrical context is pretty miserable and morose and I wanted to portray that through the video, adding to the irony of the songs title itself!
We are really busy at the moment writing and rehearsing new material for our tour in November, and we are aiming to get you our new album sometime in 2011! As a band we don't want to rush this process so sit tight and we promise it's coming!
I hope ourselves and the lovely Tom Barnes have achieved everything we were aiming for and I hope you all enjoy the final product, thank you for your time. Hopefully see you at a show on tour!
