Rock band Redlight King have shared the music video for their new single, out today, “Heavy Heart,” a song taken from their fourth album, In Our Blood, due in early 2023 via AFM Records. The song is stripped-down Rock ‘n Roll ballad “depicting the somber aftermath of a relationship and finding the will to move forward”. The video, filmed at Yosemite National Park, takes that sense of isolation into the natural world.
Band founder and frontman Kaz explains:
This song is very personal to me/ It reflects on a loving relationship that ended in heartbreak. The person in my life wasn’t able to communicate their true feelings and I’m not sure I was in a place to receive the message. It feels lonely because it is. There’s pain in losing someone you love and no amount of intuition or clarity can make it better, but writing this song helped me find closure and say what I needed to say in their absence.
He adds about the video:
For me the video translates the solitude and cold nature of bearing a broken heart, and somehow in this sadness there is beauty. I feel the ability to love someone triumphs over losing them. The video was taken in and around Yosemite National Park, Northern California by Strati Hovartos.
The forthcoming album In Our Blood was written and produced by Kaz at his home studio The Wheelhouse in Los Angeles with longtime collaborator and guitarist Julian Tomarin and drummer Randy Cooke.
