SONG PICK: Belle and the Dragon – Trees (Video)
Flyleaf’s singer/guitarist Sameer Bhattacharya and bassist Pat Seals formed pop-rock band Belle and the Dragon together with P.O.D. drummer Noah Bernardo and had their debut album “Birthrights” released earlier this year. Now they put out the joyful new single “Trees”, together with an inspiring video. It is great fun to follow Sameer along as he explores a colorful neighborhood in San Diego. The positive, sunny vibe is infectious and there are moments in the lovely clip that most certainly will put a smile on your face. The kaleidoscope effects are put to great use here too, creating a wonderfully Californian-vibe piece.
Sameer Bhattacharya says about the video:
“We shot this in Barrio Logan, San Diego on March 6, 2020 before the lockdown. Wuv introduced me to Salud! in Barrio Logan when I was looking for some killer vegan tacos. Being down there felt inspiring so I decided to shoot footage for “Trees” there not really knowing what was going to happen. The colors and the vibe in Barrio Logan is inspiring. I took the footage and tried to make it feel surreal, almost dreamlike: the cognitive dissonance of seeing the forest through the trees.”
Watch the feel-good video, and listen to our Song Pick of the Day now:
