About to hit the road in support of new album All These Countless Nights is Norfolk band Deaf Havana.
The latest track from the LP is Fever, which frontman James Veck-Gilodi describes as “the darkest song lyrically” on the record. It is a tale of periods of heavy drinking, the resulting behavioural changes and ultimately the tests they present to the relationships you hold closest. The line “I saw myself in my mother’s eyes and I found some hope,” sees the singer reflecting on a visit to his mother and a conversation that inspired change and brought balance to his lifestyle.
The accompanying music video, is the third part of a story shot in Monterrey, Mexico, at the end of 2016. “I always loved the idea of having several videos that were all part of a bigger story,” says Veck-Gilodi. “I felt like the 3 singles – Sing, Trigger and Fever – were perfect for this as they all shared and underlying theme of feeling alienated and out of control.”
“Travelling to Mexico and shooting with the guys was such an amazing experience, being so far away from home and out of our comfort zone really lent itself to the lyrical content of the songs and they ended up being the best music videos we have ever been a part of.”
The band’s UK tour begins later this month and takes in Manchester (17 Feb), Glasgow (18), Bristol (20), Birmingham (21), Norwich (23) and London (24).
