Independent rock band The Midnight Preachers debuted its latest single and the song’s video this week.
The band kicked off the weekend by premiering its new song, ‘Summertime‘ and its companion video Friday. Produced by band member Eogan McSheain and mastered by Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Sons of Apollo, Guns N’ Roses), the song opens with a guitar riff that while not exactly the same, very closely mirrors that of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song ‘Under The Bridge.’ That riff continues through the song alongside the gentle vocal delivery of bassist/vocalist Emer McLaughlin and steady time keeping of drummer Colin Kenny to make the song a catchy pop rock composition.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the press release announcing the premiere of the single and its video. In listening to the song however, it is clear that this song centers on the all too familiar topic of a romantic relationship.
The video for ‘Summertime’ is a black and white presentation that features the band in what is meant to mirror a live setting. The black and white effect is used to heighten audiences’ engagement and entertainment.
