Canadian Juno Awards nominee artist, Your Favorite Enemies premiers music video for “Underneath A Blooming Skylight” on Facebook Live
Alternative Rock Band, Your Favorite Enemies, is taking to Facebook live to officially premier their latest visual to Underneath A Blooming Skylight. This single is off of their latest album “Between Illness and Migration – Tokyo Sessions”. The latest album reached #1 on iTunes on its 2016 release.
Fresh off the heels of a special release through Exclaim! Magazine, Your Favorite Enemies is continuing the promotional train connecting with fans and music lovers alike to get more exclusive with these Canadian rockers.
The new music video is channeling Andy Warhol’s eclectic and dazzling avant-garde movies, as well as New York City’s excessively euphoric essence and self-destructive imaginary subculture, the video is also a heartfelt homage to the 1960’s psychedelic spirit incarnated by the youthful and broken underground muse Edie Sedgwick. The music video features the band’s keyboardist, where we can see Miss Isabel as the main vocalist in the song.
When asked why stripping down the melody of the original version, Alex Foster, the band’s lead singer and lyricist, answered:
“The song ain’t about the form, it’s not about the structure. It’s about being set free from any kind of form and structure. I woke up in the middle of the night with what seemed like a full formed story that only needed to be written.”
The story behind the song
“It’s the vertigo of a big city, the exhilaration of walking within a crowd all talking on their speaker phones, the suffocation of finding yourself isolated underneath a sky that keeps getting lower and lower as the buildings get higher and higher. It’s two strangers falling in love at the same time without crossing each other’s paths, but they only exist in someone else’s anonymous and elusive dreams. It’s a desire for freedom, voiced in illusionary lovers, that would become real enough to either leave forever or to forever stay.” – Alex
