Americana act Divining Rod – currently comprised of Miyuki Furtado, Patrick Harmon, Mike Malone, John Malone, and Eric Kaye – releases a beautifully shot live performance music video for their luscious track “The Silver Ship” today. We’re lucky enough to be hosting the exclusive premiere, and we’re doing so in stride while dancing around the (newly decorated) Christmas tree post-Thanksgiving festivities with the family! Says Miyuki of the video:
We shot it with our collaborator, Craig Sachs, in one night at our friend’s painting studio and edited it ourselves. We had done another video there but wanted a totally new feel. After a while I came up with this idea to film it pretty much in the dark. I wanted to use negative space to give it space and depth, The darkness came in handy considering we shot it for practically no money. We wanted to do a live performance because the way the band plays the song live is a different entity from it’s recorded version. Plus we totally suck at lip synching.
This song – and its accompanying video – are perfect for your family get togethers. So turn it on, and turn it up for all to enjoy!
