Complimenting the coming of Fall tomorrow, we see the arrival of Sentinel’s new single, Somewhere Else, a nice representation of the changing of the seasons that seemingly synchs up perfectly with the brand new video the Bay area trio worked on over the summer months here on the West Coast [US].
The video that we recommend with today’s feature was filmed in digital HD over four different days and in locations around Northern California, including Lassen Volcanic National Park, Helen Putnam Regional Park, Bear River Eldorado National Forest, and Muir Beach National Park. The band created three elementally based character myths which you can read all about on their Vimeo page; namely Tarabud, Gatherman, and Triple B.
What to say about the song, and additionally the video? I’ve already enjoyed several listens and viewings and can’t get enough of how the instrumentals really smash through at the end during mystic hour on the beach w/ the elemental trio engaged in some sort of ceremony well into the moonlit night. The panning shots and locales are fantastic, and the vocals and marching drumbeats from “up on the hill” really bring it all together. Check the Vimeo HD version below!
"Somewhere Else" is a pre-release single for our forthcoming album in 2013.
This video was filmed in digital HD over four different days and locations around Northern California, including Lassen Volcanic National Park, Helen Putnam Regional Park, Bear River Eldorado National Forest, and Muir Beach National Park. Costumes designed by each member, catering by Foodie Out of the Closet, group scenes shot by our dear friend, Josh Greene, and final edits by Dennis Bestafka. Video Character Myths:
Tarabud: Born of the Fire Mountain tribe, and its last survivor, she worships the four directions: south, west, east, north, where her ancestors protect the realms until she arrives to join them. She is crowned with sacred deer animal, always honoring its spirit before she partakes of the flesh.
Gatherman: Born of the Wheat & Crow tribe, and being its last survivor, he easily laces the two worlds of earth and sky with his drum, playing to the rhythms of creation. His sister wheat and brother crow keep him company until he can return to the sky where he will look over the fertile fields with gentle wind.
Triple B: Born of the Abalone tribe and its last survivor, the water is his refuge, sending him messages from far beyond. He thrives on the spirit of the river trout, and honors the mother river with every move, searching the banks for shells to construct a musical instrument that calls his ancestors to their resting place.
"Somewhere Else" Lyrics
How long it’s been since we were somewhere else That you belonged to me, and no one else A fortress we, a stronger we Amore, we are the last affair Along the sea, the time a blink Amore we are; and that’s why... I trust you now A kiss I can recall I trust you now Winter through the fall I trust you now The sun will shine tomorrow I trust you now We can brave it all I know that much, as far as I can tell And you foresee the sting of poison arrows And honestly, I want for me to remember to like myself The world a dream, but not asleep I remember; and that’s why...
I trust you now A kiss I can recall I trust you now Winter through the fall I trust you now The sun will shine tomorrow I trust you now We can brave it all
