Amy Speace, ‘Three Days’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Nashville-based artist Amy Speace is premiering her chilling "Three Days" music video exclusively to readers of The Boot.
"Three Days" is filled with biblical allusions to Moses, Jonah, Judas and Jesus — "Jonah gotta kneel in that beast / Bow and beg for release / No way around the time, no running from the crime / Jonah gotta kneel in that beast," Speace sings — but its music video ain't no Bible story. The clip is set in an abandoned Confederate-era church and was filmed solely in black and white, and the swampy blues- and gospel-inspired tune with a mysterious vibe benefits from that setting and style choice.
Throughout the video, colorless shots of Speace in the church create a cool, albeit spooky, visual. A bearded man is also shown howling through fire, and the shots are exactly as unsettling as they sound.
"Three Days" was co-written by Speace and Ben Glover. The song is from Speace's latest record, That Kind of Girl, which is her most intimate and vulnerable album yet, an exploration of a love affair, its aftermath of anger and alcohol and, eventually, her battle with sobering up. The 12-track project was released in March on Windbone Records and was recorded live in three days in a studio in East Nashville; Neilson Hubbard produced the album.
Speace has numerous shows scheduled throughout the summer, including one on May 6 at Nashville’s Bluebird Café; more details and tour dates are on her website. That Kind of Girl is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
