BROS, a new project from platinum-selling Canadian band The Sheepdogs’ Ewan and Shamus Currie, just premiered their hilarious, 70s inspired video for “Tell Me” off their debut album Vol. 1 (October 14 on Dine Alone Records). PRESS HERE to watch now via Magnet Magazine.
Ewan + Shamus have seen a great deal of success with their new side project, with the debut album amassing thousands of streams. Its video, funded by MuchFACT and directed by fellow Sheepdogs member RyanGullen, sees the brothers in a fantastically retro backdrop that perfectly suits the daring, yet playfully unexpected direction of the band’s sound.
Director Ryan Gullen shared this note on his inspiration for the video:
For the ‘Tell Me’ video I wanted to make a video that was serious that didn’t take itself too seriously. I drew a lot of inspiration from 90’s and early 2000’s rap videos. I love the simplicity of performance videos that include throwback vibes with a group just walking down a street being fun characters. My vision was to create a more modern take on these videos but to maintain a lot of the sensibilities and the fun tone that made these videos great. I shot the whole thing with Drones to allow for the long continual shots that kept the video moving along and mixed that with some performance stock footage that I found from a fair in Philadelphia in the 70’s.
