Waiheke soul/blues/rock outfit The Solomon Cole Band have unveiled a new video for their single 'Bruises' today via Thunderclap.
Video director Amber Beaton has captured a candid and stark interpretation of the song with a brooding vocal performance from Solomon Cole (and featuring former backing vocalist Sophia Faalogo).
Beautiful and haunting at the same time, it explores a ghostly portrayal of domestic violence, redemption, sorrow and regret. A deeply personal reference to his own childhood, Solomon Cole tells the tale in biblical allegory to protect the innocent, and sets it against director Amber Beaton's astonishingly nuanced visual narrative.
Sensitive yet powerful, BRUISES is a tour de force set against a black and white backdrop.
SCB are supporting rockers Supersuckers on their NZ tour which kicks off on November 15th.
