KAWALA RELEASE 80’S COMING OF AGE INSPIRED VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “PLAY IT RIGHT”

KAWALA are back with the new video for their recent single, ‘Play It Right’! Watch here

Inspired by the weirder side of 80’s coming-of-age movies, think Weird Science and The Goonies with a dash of Stand By Me, the video tells the tale of a young girl finding the confidence to stick up for herself via a tape of the band which produces some unusual phenomena…

“We wanted to convey the classic feel-good story line of someone building up confidence and overcoming hardships” the band explain. “Somehow it’s ended up as a super weird Sci-Fi 80’s vid in which we as a band come to life from a tape and act as a metaphoric encouragement force. I mean, obviously..”

The song itself combines stunning vocal harmonies with upbeat rhythmic guitar to create a track that’s infused with joyful energy and sunny optimism.

Speaking about the song KAWALA explain, “When writing ‘Play it Right’ we thought, what better topic for a song than to discuss the difficulties of writing a song itself. It’s kind of set from the perspective of an internal voice guiding you through the many obstacles faced when trying to write a screamer.”
