“And if this blood don’t turn to gold, I think I’m doomed…”
Celebrations! Tonight the wonderful Boy and Bear are playing in my city of Wollongong at what will probably be a sold-out Harp Hotel. I love this band – I’ve seen them four times in the past year and this will be my fifth go-around with their addictive and lovely folk-rock. So, to celebrate, I thought I’d throw together a little piece on their latest video, for one of my favourite tracks of theirs, Blood to Gold.
Each of their videos seems to have a cute, quirky concept behind it. For this video, they’ve gone for the symbolism of battling between light and dark, good and evil, night and day, etc. It’s done in gorgeous high definition, and packs a great deal in for a sub-three-minute song. I won’t bore you with much more of the details, but enjoy this! And please, for the love of God, support these guys! Grab the With Emperor Antarctica EP, or get along to a show. They’re lovely guys and deserve all the attention drawn their way. Right on!
