I mention this because I'm watching The Making of the Mob and we're about to drop a music video we've been working on that features a set of mafia characters shaking down businesses, going on a man hunt and theft. Not quite as dramatic, but still mafia. It's just kinda cool how these things come together.
I'm super excited to showcase this video as it's the first one Jesse and I worked on together for an original song pretty much by ourselves. Our friend Curtis Amaral helped us with some of the filming and consultation and our Swedish friend Thilda gave us some initial writing advice and content as well, but Jesse and I shared in the writing, production and editing of Drowned, using the skills that those on the internet share to create this story to share ourselves.
It's about how you can drown in your love of someone - or something - if immersed too deeply into its waters.
We launch it on Wednesday July 13th at 5pm PST (as we live in Vancouver, BC) on our youtube channel GUPmusic.
P.S - Check back on the blog for a first look at the video on Tuesday along with a Q+A of our journey creating 'Drowned'.
