R&B-infused pop band Carly and the Universe released the official music video for their second single of 2021, “Salvation”.
The utter dread of doing the things you don’t want to do in life. Being in an office after lunch, calling the cable company only to be put on hold for three hours, going to the DMV… OY VEY! “Salvation” is about finding the silver linings and your happy place amidst the ups and downs of life. At the core, the song is about wanting to escape reality, but when you do, it might not always be what you were expecting and might even make you a little crazy.
The visual component for “Salvation” offers a strong complementary narrative to the song, with the music video being shot at Carly’s parents’ office. Specifically, an OB-GYN office… Taking a comical approach, the shoot was nothing less than fun and even pays homage to Carly’s parents with the chaotic birthing scene and butt “shot”. Not to mention, the band took their roles very seriously by fully dressing in surgical gowns. How appropriate.
“I envision ‘Salvation’ being a place where you can find your inner peace. It’s like being surrounded by plants in a lush wilderness, or laying in a nice, cozy hammock in the middle of the jungle – or wherever else you might prefer. In essence, your ‘Salvation’ should simply be your ultimate safe place!” -Carly and the Universe
