Today, we are pleased to join forces with the lads of The Jay Vons for the release of their new music video for “Keep On Moving,” a very NYC-inspired clip that sees the band playing live as we follow them on the streets of NYC and elsewhere. The visual was directed by Artur Tort, director, cinematographer, film editor & co-founder of the production company Escafior Films.
Discussing, Tort stated, “We wanted to create a very rhythmic piece, mixing apparently random images collected during a short stay in New York with images of The Jay Vons performing at a small studio. It is a kind of back and forth movement between the almost infinte space of the city and the very condensed, narrow location where the band plays. Frantic movement of buildings, trains, and urban shapes penetrate inside the studio space, and at the same time music and lyrics tinge the constantly evolving landscape.”
Recorded at Daptone Studios, Dunham Sounds and Diamond Mine Studios with engineers/producers Wayne Gordon (Sharon Jones/Charles Bradley/King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard/Bad Bad Not Good) and Tommy Brenneck (Mark Ronson/Lee Fields/Bebel Gilberto), the record showcases how this rhythmic tour-de-force blends their love for ‘60s rock and soul with a deftness born from decades of obsessive record collecting and delivered by countless hours of writing and performing.
The Jay Vons have traveled all through the United States and internationally, making a name for themselves opening tours for such legends as Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley & The Extraorindaires, Lee Fields & The Expressions, behind two 7” singles, while also acting as the backing band for Reigning Sound.
