Hamilton indie rockers Basement Revolver have just released a colourful video for their sentimental new track, “Wax and Digital.”
The gritty, yet nostalgic new tune revolves around dynamic, resounding guitar lines, a driving drum beat, and frontwoman Chrisy Hurn’s silky, dream pop vocals. The colourful accompanying video sees the band performing “Wax and Digital” in front of cinematic orange lights as flowers dangle from the ceiling.
“It is about how culture informs our lives – even though culture changes rapidly and is temporary, we will always have certain things to hold on to, like music, to look back on and feel sentimental about,” the band explains to Indie88. “I hope that people take away a sense of nostalgia within their own lives, from the things that have helped them to fall in love, or that people think about the things that they have lost, but with thankfulness. Life is a crazy mess, but it’s beautiful and confusing and poetic, may we never forget the things that help us to make some sense of it.”
Watch the video for “Wax and Digital” below.
