Alternative Rock band Celeb Car Crash have released the official music video for their track “Enemy’s Desire” from their critically acclaimed new album People Are The Best Show. The “Enemy’s Desire” video is based on the most classical archetypes, but is still impactful: a starter, a couple, a “witness”, and a linear path dealing with life, encounters, obstacles, and supernatural events which hinder the main characters, hope, and the end. The video was made in Italy with the typical xenophilic taste the band has developed since their musical beginning.
Directed by Filippo Cinotti and Nicola Briganti, the opening scene was shot with the aid of a drone, while all the rest in unique sequence shots. A single take, filmed at dawn on November 2nd “All Souls’ Day”, was completed in slow motion and a few digital effects were added in post-production. Classe’s Lido, the seaside, and its pine grove are the setting to this video.
People Are The Best Show can be described as a powerful mix of Rock, Grunge and Alternative. Inside the twelve songs that make up the album, you can hear influences from such bands as Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Soundgarden, Metallica, and Alice in Chains. The album was recorded and mixed with the approach used by the greatest Rock bands during the ‘90s, focusing on feeling and groove rather than artificial perfection characterizing the modern productions. The album includes “Because I’m Sad”, produced and recorded at The Red Bull Studios in London in 2015, after the band won The Italian Red Bull Contest with more than 1700 band entered. Along with the recording of the single, Celeb Car Crash had the chance to play a mini tour in support of Lacuna Coil; using as a stage the almighty Red Bull Tour Bus.
The album artwork was created by Carlo Alberto, in collaboration with the great Chinese artist Maleonn, who gave the band one of his most representative images. Maleonn is one of the most influential visual artists working in China today, with his work being seen in solo exhibitions in over thirty countries throughout the world, including France, Britain, Italy and Germany, attracting the attention of international media including The Guardian, Daily Mail, and The BBC.
