Video Shoot + more

October 18th, 2010 by

This past weekend we finished filming our video for “Too Much Eye Makeup” off of our EP (released earlier this summer). The weatherman held up his end of the bargain and spoiled us with a rain-free day, which is always a bonus when you film outdoors. The video should be finished within the next month or two.

A million “thank-yous” go out to the small group of friends and family that helped to make the shoot possible, especially Edwin Conroy Jr. and Natasha Pedros from Suitcase In Point Theatre Company, who sacrificed two full Saturdays of their free time, their health and general well-being to be abused by us for the sake of our art. Fantastic actors, good sports, great people — and if you’re ever in the Niagara-area when a Suitcase In Point production is happening, please do check it out.

October proved to be colder than we anticipated for an outdoor shoot. Fifteen-degrees and sunny isn’t as temperate as it sounds. (Note to self: film next video between June and August.) Click Music Musings and Miscellany. Here’s an excerpt:

“Destroyer is a dramatic and darkly operatic prologue to the main business. The remainder of the tunes all manage to accomplish their mission in under five minutes without letting the attention wander. The curiously titled Too Much Eye Makeup is perhaps both the best and the most typical of the band’s sound, with the bass providing the melodic framework while the keyboards and guitars both take their turn in the spot light before combining into a powerful finale that still manages to avoid the end-of-album-wig-out cliché.”

RECORDING

We’re heading back into the studio next month to begin work on our upcoming full-length. We’ve whittle the album down to 10 songs. We’ll be blogging our progress along the way. Until then, click here to check out a preview of one of the new songs, “Last Kicks of a Dying Horse,” which we played at NXNE 2010.

We likely won’t be playing any live shows until early 2011, so until then…

Carry on,
OWV
