It's finally here! I'm so proud of the work and the song and way it all came together. Big props to Four Legged Features for all the hard work and creativity! I hope you'll take a moment to give it a listen and pass it on! It's on my myspace page, but it also lives on YouTube at:
Thank you in advance and let's make this thing go viral!
Hello friends and fans,
It gives me great pleasure and sheer glee to announce that I finally made a music video. I worked with NJ based production company Four Legged Features to produce a dark and retro-y version of the song "Motels" off my latest album, The Wild Joys of Living. If you haven't heard the song, you can stream it on Soundcloud.
The video will go live on YouTube and Vimeo on Tuesday, Nov. 1st and I'll forward the links on all my sites, as well as have it live on my web site, www.emilyzuzik.com.
The song itself came about after one of my What's In a Name? Challenges in NYC. This was an event I started where a group of songwriters would be given a word and we would all write songs with it. The word from this time was Motel. We got some interesting responses to it.
I always call this my Queens of the Stone Age "desert rock" song. I remember thinking I wanted to write something like that only acoustic, maybe add a dash of Camper Van Beethoven to it. The first line was taken from my friend Brian Grosz's story about how he would go to hotels sometimes to sequester and write. From there, the dark tale began...
I hope you'll take some time to check it out and if you like it, please pass it on to others who you think might too. Let's make this thing go viral, baby!
More to come...
