The Good Lovelies, ‘Waiting for You’ Video [Exclusive Premiere]
The Good Lovelies, one of Canada's premiere folk bands, are premiering their "Waiting for You" music video exclusively on The Boot.
The trio, made up of Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, was formed in 2006 in Toronto, Ontario. Since then, they have released three full-length studio albums, with one more, Burn the Plan, coming on May 26.
"Waiting for You" shows off the Good Lovelies' honeyed harmonies, while the song's music video is simple, shot in black and white and featuring the three (very lovely) ladies. Each woman has a distinct look and personality on camera, and they also play their respective instruments while singing -- a trio with a cohesive sound yet made up of distinctly individual women -- which makes for an interesting yet subdued video.
The clip really lets the song shine, and the black-and-white shots create a classic and sophisticated look. However, very close to the end of the video, there's a colorful change, reflecting the hopeful lyrics, and it alters the entire vibe of the video.
The band, which has garnered praise from the international folk community, has a spirit of adventurousness on their upcoming record, which is being released on Six Shooter Records. On Burn the Plan, the group is "both fulfilling and defying their so-called musical destiny as a 'folk trio.'"
