Wenke, our guest blogger from Berlin, shares her impressions about Mount Rushmore Safari’s new video:
In November 2014, MOUNT RUSHMORE SAFARI set sail to new musical shores by signing with their new record label Trechoma Records, planning to release a new album called “Songs for ones who break” in 2015 together. Now its first single is finally out and comes with a decent but nonetheless high-class video, directed by Yasser Yassin from Danish production company ØjeKast.
“River Of Light” thrives on the typical Mount Rushmore Safari indie sounds: playful and catchy hooks, intense guitar riffs with a breath of pushiness and driving rock ´n` roll beats.
The video offers everything a good story needs: an unhappy, married guy, a pretty and exciting girl, having drinks at a bar together – talking, touching, sex. Could this become love? No. Tragic is not long in coming when Miss Clueless finds the wedding ring. She quits disappointed, leaving a miserable guy whose short happiness from last night fades by the light of day. But what’s all that misery for? The show must go on.
