Video: The Orwells – “Black Francis”

posted by Oscar January 12, 2017

Our boys The Orwells have shared their new visuals for a newly unveiled track, “Black Francis.” The song will appear Terrible Human Beings, out February 17th on Canvasback Music.

Speaking about its conception, Guitarist Matt O’Keefe calls the song “an ode to one of our main men,” referring to The Pixies Frank Black, aka Black Francis.  “Felt long overdue that we paid him some direct respect. We’ve been ripping him off for years, hopefully this chips away at the massive debt we’ve got to him.”

The music video was directed by Matt’s brother, Eddie O’Keefe. In a press release, Eddie says the goal was to”channel a sort of nineties hip-hop energy; something that could compliment the track’s Beastie Boys-like cadence. In an effort to achieve that feeling, we drew inspiration from Spike Lee, using the opening-title dance sequence from Do The Right Thing and his infamous floating subject shots as the foundation of our shoot.” See it above.

Video: The Orwells – “The Righteous One”

posted by Oscar February 3, 2014

The Orwells debuted a new track with Zane Lowe titled, “The Righteous One,” and soon after The Fader premiered the visuals that go along with it. The track is a good, modern Garage tune following that classic soft-loud formula; you can hear an early White Stripes influence in this as well. The video, directed by Eddie O’Keefe as per usual, keeps it equally cool by shooting multi-angle black-and-white closeups of each member of the band performing the track. See it above.
