SEVERAL months after their Fermanagh version of Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ video racked up over 26,000 hits – the local band behind it have released their latest single.
Blurred Lines, which features Roisin Burns on vocals and keyboards, Lisa Howe on drums, Daniel O’Toole on guitar, and Richard Ireson on bass, have released their latest single.
This time it’s a cover of P!NK’s ‘Raise Your Glass’.
Drummer Lisa explained: “We’re always trying to raise the bar with each release, our previous single ‘Happy’ is beyond 26,000 views and the feedback was astonishing.
“For weeks we were stopped in the street by strangers who loved our video. It’s been a challenge to pick a follow up song but we think we’ve got it right. It’s also an opportunity for us to introduce our newest member Richard Ireson who we’re very proud to say joined us in June.”
Part of the video includes crowd shots filmed at an ‘exclusive’ party held by the band for the purpose of getting footage for the video.
“We had initial concerns about this style of video, we were so dependant on the ‘crowd’ to make it look good, a lot could have went wrong but they did us more than proud and really make it an entertaining watch,” Lisa went on.
“It’s a lively house party setting with the band performing among a bunch of friends dancing and singing. It’s real sweat and enjoyment, the kind of atmosphere that can’t be staged, it really does look great.”
The song was produced by John Moffatt at Oaks Rehearsals and Recordings in Enniskillen, with Dan Doran involved in the filming.
The video was released through the band’s Facebook page.
Lisa concluded: “We’re excited to be playing throughout September to be playing Belfast, Dublin and Enniskillen as part of Guinness Amplify. We literally received 10 gig offers for one of the dates, things are really starting to take off gigs wise for us.”
