VIDEO PREMIERE: Season of Ghosts – “A Place To Call Home”

UK rock band Season of Ghosts have premiered their new music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “A Place To Call Home” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album A Leap Of Faith which is due out in September.

Vocalist Sophia Aslanides commented:

When you create something earnestly, with people you love, it radiates all over. It cannot be overshadowed by anything. That’s how I live my life, and how I create. Earnestly. This song and this video is no different. It all started from an idea that Max, our drummer had. He said he knew a company that operates helicopters and thought it would be cool to use it for a video. Somehow it seemed to fit in with back story of the song. The lyrics are about trying to rediscover yourself, redefine your direction, and re-calibrate your life purpose. Sometimes we get lost along the way, distracted by petty, every day disturbances, viruses of the soul that we allow to command us. Those viruses can be so strong, they can impede our ability to see, to be who we are, and forget our mission. As our brain becomes cloudy, sometimes our reflection in the mirror looks awkward, funny, and unfamiliar. This is the story behind “A place to call home”.

Of course, in practice trying to tell the same story on video, with some of your favourite people in the world, can have miscellaneous results. We agreed to fly in Intetsu from Japan to shoot this video. He’s a long time friend and work partner, from back when I worked with his Visual Kei band, AYABIE. Nowadays, he also is a videographer and having him around was a blessing. His way of work is so smooth and comforting, even for the camera-shy like me. What particularly impressed me, was the fact that while I was about to throw up when the helicopter was manoeuvring across the Italian skies like crazy, he was shooting in the cabin with the calmness of a Zen master. “That’s dedication!”, I thought, while I kept shouting at the pilot to stop spinning us around like we were possessed!
