Orange County’s Western Divide have released a new music video, for the song The Reprise, written and produced by the band themselves. Western Divide will be releasing a new EP Fall in Love to This later this summer. Western Divide was formed by former members of OC straight edge bands, and features Shea Ryan on vocals, Garrison Giali on drums, and David Giali on guitar.
We spoke to the band about their new record and video:
Drawing from a tradition of American hardcore, folk, and indie-rock, California-based ensemble WESTERN DIVIDE traverses genres to deliver an infectious blend of songwriting, energy, and emotion; and they are aiming straight for your heartstrings. Reminiscent of groups like the Clash, Jawbreaker, and Gaslight Anthem, WESTERN DIVIDE’s honest and melody-driven approach will hit you where you can feel it. The band’s debut single “The Reprise” is now available on all major streaming platforms, with their debut album “Fall in Love to This” set for release in July 2017.
“The Reprise” is a narrative about the exact moment when I felt the exhilaration of a brand-new love, as it replaced negative feelings from the past. The music video represents an actual moment in time, in places that actually exist, witnessed by passersby that might have seen it if they were paying attention. We shot the video in all the same places to encapsulate that moment. It’s about as real as it gets, crafted from the raw imagery and emotion of that memory.
The video for The Reprise was filmed and edited by Harper Bora, Cassandra Day, and Sydnee Fitts.
