Back in the mists of time, Sunday Driver launched a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign to raise money to make a video for Carousel, the proposed first single off our upcoming album The Mutiny. It was a huge success and we raised nearly twice our target.
Although it’s taken a lot longer than we anticipated – due to unforseen problems, poor weather, the quest for artistic perfection, and the usual unexpected faffing that accompanies all creative projects – the video is finally here. It’s definitely been worth the wait and has racked up thousands of views in just a single week. Hurrah!
Here’s the video, and you can buy the single now on Bandcamp.
The observant among you will notice that it’s now not even the same song that we originally intended to release. Once we’d actually recorded, mixed and mastered the album, we realised that a previously unassuming little tune – Concubine Waltz – had turned out much stronger than we expected, so we decided to make that the lead single instead.
Massive thanks are due to Evelyn Kreite and GD Falksen, who masterminded and made the video for us. They are two of the most awesome people I know and went far above the call of duty to make this. Thank you both x
