Southsea power-pop band The Stayawakes have revealed their new single Inevitable Truth! The track is lifted from their forthcoming album Dogs And Cats / Living Together (June 11).
Guitarist PJ Foulk says; “While scratching around for ideas for the Inevitable Truth video we were fortunate enough to be approached by the super-talented Michael Middleton-Downer. He has an awesome back catalogue to date, so we were stoked! Mike put together a treatment based on the vibe he was getting from the song; he wanted the video to have a pumped up summer feeling with a hint of nostalgia.
We added some personal nostalgia to the mix also. Andrew once asked a barber in 1989 to cut his hair like Ralph Macchio, from a desire when growing-up to be like Daniel Larusso from Karate Kid. He finally got his chance in this shoot. Jimmy didn’t care about the storyline, so long as he got to dust off his skateboard and pull a few boneless shove-its.
It was also important to us that we recorded it in our hometown of Southsea. The Clarence Pier Amusements has heaps of atmosphere and ended up being the perfect setting for the video”
