Vancouver’s genre-blending collective Sunday Morning – comprised of Bruce Wilson, Leah Commons, Stephen Hamm, Coco Culbertson, Justin Leigh and Kevin Rose – released their debut self-titled full length in December. But they haven’t slowed down to enjoy the fruits of their labor just yet, as today they release the music video for their track “Can’t Find You”.
Photographer and filmmaker R.d. Cane worked with the band to create images and videos for three of the album tracks. “The emotional content of all these pieces was drawn from personal trauma,” admits Wilson. “So I needed to work with someone I felt completely comfortable with. [R.d.’s] direction was unobtrusive and he captured the raw essence of the content.”
He really says that with no bias, as the emotion is palpable from moment one of this video. Shot in stark, contrasting colors – and largely black and white – the Burton-esque visuals of Wilson singing (in the snow, mind you) and a young woman dealing with clear abandonment issues draw sympathy from the audience. The rough vocals bring another layer of grief to the narrative about love and living in the moment.
The record release show will take place on January 21st at The Cultch. The band plays live very rarely, so it will definitely be a sight to see! Keep up with the band here.
