Freshly back from two months touring in the States and with the announcement of their first UK tour in March, husband and wife duo, Ida Mae, (Chris Turpin and Stephanie Jean) release the enticing video for new single ‘If You Don’t Love Me’, directed by Tim Hyland and Luke Courtenay Smith with LNT productions.
Filmed in one take at a 17th century old shoe maker’s mansion in the band’s hometown of Norwich, the duo said of the video, “We wanted to capture a sense of late night / early morning, the quiet moment before the sun comes up with a hint of ‘Exile on main street’!”
‘If You Don’t Love Me’ is one of those songs that deserves to be listened to; its beautiful simplicity demands your attention. And, as if in recognition of this fact, the video pays homage to what music should be about: sitting, listening and enjoying a great song. Beginning with a close up of the duo, the one shot camera slowly zooms out, each passer by stopping to enjoy the gorgeous sound coming from the back of the room.
Ida Mae play the following UK & Ireland dates. Tickets for their European and UK tour are on sale now:
