Holy Coves

‘Away We Go’ | Video of the Week

This is Video of the Week from Wales Arts Review. We’ll be showcasing some of the best art in Wales with a new video shared every week. From music to drama and everything in between, videos will not be limited by medium. This week we’re enjoying the summer sounds of ‘Away We Go’, the new music video from Holy Coves.

We’re making the most of that summer feeling with a sound which might be described as Anglesey-meets-California for this week’s Video of the Week. ‘Away We Go’ is the fourth single and video in a series of five music videos to be released by Welsh rock band Holy Coves from their acclaimed album Druids and Bards – created by award winning Ukrainian Filmmaker Taras Merenkov and filmed by Jason Griffith.

Merenkov’s hazy cinematic style of direction lends itself to that summer vibe and captures the very essence of the music and makes a formidable accompanying visual, filmed on location in the band’s home turf in Wales. The song is taken from Druids and Bards which is out now via Welsh label ‘Yr Wyddfa Records’ and has already won support from the likes of Huw Stephens and Adam Walton.

The track ‘Away We Go’ is the work of Welsh Singer/Songwriter, Scott Marsden and was Recorded at Pehhesgyn Hall Studios, Menai Bridge Anglesey, Produced by Scott Marsden, John Lawrence (Gorky Zycotic Mynci ) & Owain Ginsberg (We Are Animal / Hippies vs Ghosts) and Mixed by Erik Wofford (The Black Angels) in Austin Texas USA. Scott has described his inspiration behind the track and video as being a tribute to his wife: “The line ‘All I see is you and me ‘ was written for my wife. She’s my soulmate, We’ve been through so much together, Whenever I sing this I think of her.”

It’s a fitting song to see out the summer, from a band who have spent much of the past few months touring the whole of the UK.

Druids and Bards is available to buy now and ‘Away We Go’ is available for streaming in all the usual places.
