Game of Thrones has ended, but a phrase Winter is coming will always have a special place in everyone’s hearts, am I right? So does new music. When was the last time you’ve heard or seen new band you thought “That’s not bad”? Me – fairly recently. Last week in London to be exact. And no, the title of this post is not about a film, I’ve never watched before, but a band I had the pleasure to see on stage.
To paint a picture, the gig took place on Tuesday and was advertised very poorly. Even though the amount of people was closer to a small gathering than a rave and the sound was not the greatest, I still enjoyed it. Wild Tales were the opening act, with soundcheck lasting just 5 minutes they poured their hearts and souls into it. You won’t see many bands with such dedication. Also, they are a bunch of humble Joes, very nice guys they are.
As my mate said, they are a bit UK. If you ask me, it’s a compliment or simply stating a fact – they are from the UK. Show them some love!
Where to find Wild Tales: Spotify / Soundcloud / Apple Music / Deezer / Facebook
On Friday, the 13th Kodaline released new music video, the first single from their new EP I Wouldn’t Be. You can find it on Spotify and iTunes.
Ready to Change is lyrically a bittersweet song, with a pretty clear chorus.
You can stand on the edge shouting out that you’re ready to change
You can say what you want
You won’t jump, you’re not ready to change, ready to change
The music video is perfectly paired with the lyrics. It tells a story of a Zoo worker, who’s afraid of talking to humans, connecting with animals instead. He ends up being a love interest of a new co-worker. Four-minute-video is filled with adorable animals, a love triangle and heartwarming ending, as we learn, no matter who you are and how hard it is to connect, we all can be happy, if we want it bad enough.
The video was shot entirely in Fota Wildlife Park in Cork, Ireland, featuring not only the animal residents, but also staff members as extras. The location fees were donated to Red Panda Forest Guardian Project in Nepal.
