Catch Beautiful Losers live tomorrow night (June 4, 2019) at Rusty Hook
Here’s the first song (Temple) from Beautiful Losers’ one and only first gig ever. A big, sincere “thank you for your support” to each and every audient in the audience and to Jozi’s Showbar for the platform.
Listen to more of the Beautifuls’ original rock music here.
I briefly stopped working on K-Jo’s upcoming music video to take a photo of this breathtaking shot during my last edit session. The shot’s breathtaking-ness is due to both K-Jo’s lovely DNA and Neil Kirby’s skill with lighting and cameras. Neil brought his skills – and also his gear – to the production of the video and has now afforded me the opportunity to edit it on his new mac. The video is looking stunning and that would not have been possible without Neil’s generosity and I am infinitely grateful. Thanks Neil. We are indie guerillas!
Now, about the video . . .
If you know the song (The Dilemma), you’ll know that it’s about a young woman tormented by a decision. She’s talks about regret and feeling trapped, so the video has a “stagnant” theme. K-Jo moves through her story without moving much! I think the concept is working well and at times the vid borders on an animation . . . but I don’t want to say too much. You will see it soon enough!
Fun fact: Hollow and Club of Suns last single, Liberosis, are siblings. For the full effect, listen to Hollow to the end, then click the in-video link to listen to Liberosis. Cosmic.
It’s Tulla who wasn’t in the shallow when we recorded this. Stepping into Lady Gaga’s shoes is definitely a step into the deep-end. We Beautiful Losers were content to just splash about in the kiddie pool behind her. Good song, good fun.
It was a pleasure to work with you, Tulla. Thanks for a great performance!
Recorded at The Cooler.
. . . When the winds of change are blowing in your face
No one there even wants to know your name
Know that you should never have to feel afraid
There is a place that you can still reclaim
You could be home . . .
I’m looking forward to hammering out this dynamic rock song live.
