Walking home down Congress street after a pretty splendid evening, my friends and I stopped at the huge crowd, spilling over the sidewalk. This band was playing and getting everyone in a frenzy. I recorded this segment between two of their very few breaks – they’re like the Energizer Bunnies of breathing into metal instruments. Check em out here.
When asked if I’d be interested in making a music video for Barossa Valley blues singer, Kelly Menhennett, I said what I always say, that I’d have a listen and think about it. In three minutes I was back on the phone.
I love this song and it reminded me straight away of the feeling of being in Austin at night. The uncrisp sounds, the texture of the light, and the sight of buskers everywhere. Luckily for me, the singer related straight away; she had recorded the album in Nashville.
Although the song is about desire, we steered that meaning to focus on music and featured our home-town of Adelaide in all the weird ways we love it.
