Queens & Kings – You Got Me (New Video)
“Every time Brendan and I rehearse together, new ideas emerge. We have a ton of songs in the vault, haha! But I think “You Got Me” is the first song we fully fleshed out and saw to completion, so we decided to make it the first single we would release from the EP we are working on and we’re really excited to finally be releasing some of our material!”
The duo had originally planned to shoot the video in California, but while in Aruba decided the desert was just too perfect to pass on, with the second half of the video being filmed nearby Trinity Bellwoods Park.
“Brendan is a professional photographer so we had his DSLR with us while in Aruba. We have both wanted to get into video more seriously for a long time, so on our last day there, we knew we had to give it a go. We are both very visual people and had a strong creative concept for this video. Brendan just researched some video camera settings and we hopped in the car and just figured it out as we went. We filmed the remainder of the video with our friend Fred Yurichuk in Toronto and then Brendan and I did the editing at home. Luckily, Brendan is like a sponge when it comes to anything that merges art and technology so he was able to learn some pretty advanced editing tools very quickly. We like to keep it pretty DIY when we can.”
