Indie pop musos, December Streets, have released the music video for their latest single, Same Faces.
The band released the tune off their upcoming album earlier this month and now have a video to go with the track.
‘Falling out of love’
Talking about what inspired Same Faces, December Streets frontman Tristan Coetzee reveals the song is about “falling out of love”.
“Whether through a toxic relationship or simply losing the initial connection. It speaks to losing the spark, falling into cycles of repetition and bad habits and ultimately acknowledging that you’re not in the best of places.”
With that said, Coetzee adds that he hopes the song will make listeners “be aware of relationships in your life that are stealing from you rather than adding”.
‘Like something out of The Haunting of Hill House’
The video was filmed in Johannesburg in a historic house from the 1800s – a vibe the musician says “looked like something out of The Haunting of Hill House series!”
Coetzee added that shooting the video made him and his bandmates feel like they were on a movie set.
“The energy and history in the home was electric, which inspired over the top performance. And with the creative guidance of the Run Jump Fly team, we were able to produce beyond cinematic scenes!”
‘It is sounding fire!’
December Streets are set to release their hotly anticipated album in March.
Speaking of what fans can expect, Coetzee said: “We’ve been working on this album for over a year now, and it is sounding fire! It’s going to be jam-packed with a sonic journey from high energy pop-punk sounds to 80’s inspired ballads. I really think our fans are going to connect with this body of work and get a deeper connection to who December Streets is.
“The main ‘benefit’ to writing this album during lockdown was that we had so much time to really focus and craft each sound and lyric,” Coetzee added.
The local band will also embark on a nationwide tour coinciding with the release of their album.
“We will be performing the new music for the first time, naturally sprinkled with a bunch of our classics from the last decade. We cannot wait to connect with a live audience again,” Coetzee concluded.
