Indie rock band, Scarlet Sails are thrilled to unveil their music video for their single, “Upside Down.” CLICK HERE to watch exclusively on Tidal. The video was directed by Karina Kandel.
Lead singer, Olya Viglione says, “Upside Down” is a song about facing life and its changes, letting go of the past. It talks about chances that you don’t consider that end up turning your life around when you least expect it. Karina Kandel, our director, expressed the meaning of the song in her concept for the video, through a peculiar relationship of the main heroine with her suitcase that symbolizes the past and the memories that she has a trouble letting go off. This was a lot of fun to shoot and act out with a retro look to match the mood, me and our whole team had a blast.
“Upside Down” was produced by Ben Rice (Norah Jones, The Candles, Elliot & the Ghost).
Scarlet Sails consist of Russian born singer-songwriter, Olya Viglione and Dresden Dolls drummer, Brian Viglione. Their chemistry was immediate with Brian bringing life to the songs that Olya had been writing. Before long, the two formed Scarlet Sails, rounding out the line up with guitarist Mark Kohut and bassist Kevin Jones. Centered around Olya’s sultry, power-house vocals, Scarlet Sails craft an elaborate blend of rock & pop, with uniquely catchy melodies, passionate and reflective lyrics and an undeniable swagger that has drawn comparisons to artists as diverse as David Bowie, Nico, Radiohead and Oasis.
In April 2017 Scarlet Sails released their debut Future from the Past to critical acclaim, with Consequence of Sound premiering the album and Impose Magazine lauding the band’s “pure rock n’ roll vibes”. The band supported the release with three national tours and a New Year’s Eve show in Moscow.
In support of the new album the band will be doing one show in NYC in October and then hitting the road to the UK in early November for some tour dates. See tour dates below.
