Gena Perala releases a live off the floor recording of her new single Lucky One on the 25th of July. Perala got some musicians together at Monarch Studios in Vancouver BC, and filmed the process. Watch here
Lucky One is a little bit Rock and Roll and a little bit Country with her signature lyrical style: Honest and unapologetic sprinkled with a bit of sass. “I wanted to show all the moving pieces of a song so I brought in a good friend and filmmaker to shoot us while we played the track live off the floor.” Perala explains.
The video captures a fun and playful day in the Studio without any real plan or rehearsal. “I mean I probably should have done a wee bit of planning and rehearsing but hindsight is 20/20 plus I wanted it to be spontaneous. I really wanted to give people an idea of all the instrumentation and players behind a song,” Perala says, explaining the concept of the video.
Lucky One is part of a side project for Perala right now. She is currently in the process of recording and releasing a down tempo electronic synth album but with so much material the artist feels the need to release music in many forms. “I just need to start getting my music out and I thought this would be a fun way to release a song,” she says.
