Originally from Calgary, Secret Broadcast now call Toronto their home. Opening for major Canadian acts such as, Metric, Tokyo Police Club, The Stills and Matthew Good, playing main stage at Virgin Festival, showcasing at CMJ, NXNE, CMW, JunoFest and even playing a private party for Richard Branson. They’ve also been a mainstay on Canadian radio hitting top 40 on the Canadian rock, alternative and college radio charts.*
With the release of this new record, ‘Filthy Souls’, they have created a sound of their own that combines guitar-driven melodic rock songs with Brit-pop inspired sonic textures. Bear witness and be prepared to be impressed and exhilarated when Secret Broadcast bring their Filthy Souls to a city near you*
This video had my attention from the beginning as filming while driving hasn’t been done to death-yet- and offered a challenge. But the fact that they used minimal electric support and the clarity and quality of both instrumentation and voice for the recording of the video was fantastic. This was an interesting video to watch, I kept my eye on the guitarist who seemed to have the hardest job of not losing his balance (standing slumped as he played) his band mates seemed to be in more stable positions, as the van made its way through the streets. Filming using Go Pro cameras, though not new, is well utilized in this video with an nice editing job done to present an interesting visual experience of each band members POV throughout the trip.
Ending the video with a cop car pulling them over, looks staged by the untrained eye. But lo and behold, this was an interesting coincidence that we unfortunately don’t get to see the ending of!
What do you think happened? would love to hear your thoughts!
