Rock band, Motel Faces release a music video for their new single, “BlackBird”.
“‘BlackBird’ was written over two years ago. But with it being so drastically different than anything else we had been doing, it sort of got pushed aside,” says guitarist John Harper. “We ended up getting a DM on Instagram from former guitarist of Foxy Shazam, Loren Turner. He was trying to kickstart his recording studio and wanted to see if we’d be up for working with him. Something about the opportunity just spoke to us and instinctively knew this was the chance to bring ‘BlackBird’ to life!”
“This song is really really about struggling with life and how past mistakes have shaped your life. The line ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’ is actually from the Johnny Depp movie Public Enemies. The movie ends on that final word from John Dillinger telling her ‘Bye Bye Blackbird’ and it really got me thinking about what can you really do and how could life have been different had you not made mistakes or chosen the wrong path in life? How can you change? or even can you change? It became a really deep thought experiment and was an idea that stuck with me after the movie,” adds lead vocalist Nick Liston.
