Emperors Night has released the official music video for their song “Not A Soul In Sight,” off the New Zealand-born, Toronto-based trio’s debut EP, Driving At Pace. CLICK HERE to watch and check out the first look with V13 Media. “Not A Soul In Sight” was written just after the COVID-19 lockdown began in the spring. The eerie emptiness on the streets of downtown Toronto, the band’s adopted hometown this past year, inspired the moody, classic rock-style track. Resounding piano, serpentine bass, and ragged guitar all take turns supporting a haunting lead vocal, telling a story that will no doubt resonate with many people living through the events currently going on in the world, while offering a glimpse of hope.

“In times of uncertainty, where do we turn for stability, to anchor ourselves against the tide?,” asks the band. “‘Not A Soul In Sight’ was sparked by an eerie moment looking down from a top floor apartment in Toronto during lockdown and seeing an empty city lying still beneath us. Expressed in the song are the thoughts and feelings it provoked within us at the time. The video, which features the three of us brothers in lonely empty scenes, is a reflection of something we felt fortunate to have during these times – each other to rely on, contrasting moments of personal isolation with the strength found in bonds of family and friendship.”
