With a little help from their friends, ARCANE ROOTS have created their most stunning video to date for ‘Curtains‘, and today can finally unveil it. Shot in the cold, wet and windy hills of Wales, ‘Curtains’ see’s the band mix together footage and special FX to stunning affect. The band brought in ‘Resolve’ video director Miguel Santana, who has worked with ILM on visual effects for the likes of Guardians Of The Galaxy, Rogue One, The Force Awakens and Spectre.
Watch ‘Curtains’ above!
The single was released on December 5th and is now available to buy or stream on all digital platforms through Easy life / Red Essential (Lower Than Atlantis, Tonight Alive, Waterparks).
‘Curtains’ had its world premier on the Radio 1 Rock Show on December 4th with a first ever back to back, live double play (full version, not radio edit). The song then took on a life of it’s own at Radio 1, with constant support from Huw Stevens, Clara Amalfo, Mistajam and Daniel P Carter, all playing the full, over 4 minutes edit.
The band also recently announced a very special, one off London headline show on February 3rd at Bush Hall, to celebrate the single release and also share and unveil the next stage in their live development. The show sold out in under 24 hours and support at the show will come from London 3 piece, Mantra (which you can check out HERE). More information on the bands much anticipated 2nd album will come very soon, and expect more new music and live announcements soon.
From ARCANE ROOTS front man, Andrew Groves:
“Throughout the writing process there were frequent moments where a visual idea or theme led the music and we wanted to endeavour to bring those moments to life for the audience. We wanted the ‘Curtains’ video to encapsulate all the themes within the record in a very literal way, almost as if it was like an animated piece of the artwork. We wanted to show how the beauty in the miraculous lives we lead, and how it’s forever shrouded before our very eyes, by the weight of the world and all of it’s minutiae.”
