オルタナロックバンド Sham Family、'Lasso'のMVを公開

Sham Family

カナダ/トロント拠点のオルタナティヴロックバンド Sham Familyが、11/10に Wavy Haze Recordsからリリースしたニューシングル 'Lasso'のMVを公開!

ディレクターは Connory Ballantyne。

1/21発売のデビューEP『Sham Family』収録曲。10月発表のデビュー曲 'This Blue Mob'がすごくかっこよかったから定点観測してるバンド。元々はフロントマン Kory Rossのソロプロジェクトとして始まり、徐々に地元のDIYコミュニティの中で今の編成へ移っていったそうです。

そして地元の人気バンド Born Ruffiansが、おそらく自身の作品を出すために作ったと思われるレーベル Wavy Haze Recordsで、初めて契約した外部のバンドでもあります。その経緯と、彼らをツアーサポートに抜擢した下記の日程を見ても相当な惚れ込み方です。



“I wrote this song about being stuck in a cyclical, problematic place in your life. It’s about being burnt down over and over again, and being mended by the same fire, making you feel like it was your fault for standing too close to the flame. The lasso is wrapped around your ankle, loose enough that you don’t notice, to let you feel like you’re in control, but forever there to reel you back in whenever you stray too far. It’s a story of frustration of a toxic routine that felt so ordinary and comfortable for a long time. It becomes so easy to become dependent on something or someone when you’re convinced it’s for your own good, and the longer & deeper you go, the harder it can be to objectively see the situation for what it is.” - Kory Ross
