//AMISTAD// is about to Talk Peace to a Wolf with an audience at the Whistler Film Festival.
Currently in Vancouver where they played the Biltmore Cabaret Thursday with Van Damsel & 45 Spacer, they return to the coast Dec. 2 to perform as one of 10 music acts selected to showcase their songs at the Whistler festival.
The timing is perfect, as the band recently filmed and produced its latest video, Darkerside, the third single off its new EP, Talk Peace to a Wolf.
//AMISTAD// bassist Nolan Bassett took the reins to direct and film the video, which was recently premiered on Geyser Music.
“The idea behind the video for Darkerside was to play off of the alter ego theme in the video from our first single Radikal,” said Bassett. “(It’s) sort of a battle between the good and the bad. Filming the video happened very quickly because we had a really clear vision for how we wanted the video to look.”
Darkerside takes a truly darker turn than the Telus Storyhive funded video //AMISTAD//made for its second single Human, said lead singer Aidan Andrews.
“On Talk Peace to a Wolf we play with this concept of a good and a bad side, a light and a dark,” says Andrews. “Darkerside seemed to be the only song on the EP that was entirely in the dark. It was my bad side, that alter-ego fully in control. So for me, it’s always been this song that I feel is very confessional in the way it blatantly states exactly what I’m thinking when I’m in that state of mind.”
For those in Whistler on the weekend, //AMISTAD// play Garfinkel’s Dec. 2 for the 2016 Whistler Film Festival.
