The new single from Victoria Klewin And The True-Tones gets an exclusive airing here at National Rock Review, and we love it.
“Home Alone” is the latest single to be released from Victoria Klewin And The True Tones‘s debut album Dance Me To Heaven.
Victoria says of the single – “The song was obviously heavily influenced by my love of jazz;- comparisons have been made with Peggy Lee, which is nice. I remember I was also listening to Imelda May‘s breakthrough album Love Tattoo a lot at the time. It wasn’t actually written about or to anyone in particular, I was literally just home alone and started singing the first line absentmindedly and thought ‘that sounds good’…so I scrambled around for some paper, got to the piano, and just carried it on from there, imagining myself into a far more exciting scenario than I was actually in! Ironically I was in a bit of a passionless relationship at the time so maybe it was just a fantasy!”
The video was shot in part at Bar Humbug in Bristol, with footage from the exclusive album launch which was held for fans who had pledged as part of a crowd-funding campaign for the album. It also includes people who pledged to be in the video too. The band are totally independent (although they don’t intend to stay that way forever, if any management companies are interested), and like to support local independent people too. Evie Smith was the make-up artist and a shop called Iota provided the props for the shoot. The video was shot by local film-maker/director Marcus Way.
The atmospheric video for “Home Alone” has an old school jazz/swing feel to it, with great production value. Watch the video exclusively here at National Rock Review.
