[Video] The Courtneys - Silver Velvet
One of our hot ten last month, Vancouver bans The Courtneys now share the visuals for their catchy grunge with a fuzzy edge track ‘Silver Velvet'.
Taken from their upcoming album 'II', released February 27 2017 via Flying Nun Records.
“Our video for ‘Silver Velvet’ is a homage to the video for ‘Splat’ by New Zealand band Bailter Space, who are a Flying Nun band,” says the band. “At the time we made the video, we didn’t even know we’d be working with Flying Nun! We were just big fans. Ryan Dyck of Hockey Dad Records did the cinematography, and the video features cameos from our recording engineer Jordan Koop, “Curly Courtney” (Hugo Noriega), and members of our friends bands Dead Soft, B-Lines, Dead Ghosts, Woolworm , Flyin’, Nervous Operator, Needles//Pins, plus vehicle cameos from our old van “the courtneymobile”, Courtneys convertible, and Macy’s van with the mushroom window, which is basically famous for appearing in most Vancouver music videos. Plus, a dog cameo from Lady Dog”
