Fernie, BC based alternative folk band, Shred Kelly has released a video for their brand new single, “Archipelago” which is off of their upcoming album. The video was shot in Calgary and directed and produced by Brett Connors and Brett Ferster from The Light Factory. When asked about the song, the band commented,
“The song Archipelago started with a cruisy banjo riff that is prevalent throughout the song. The lyrics came about a bit later and they tell the story of a night spent in the archipelago near Stockholm, Sweden where we had recently visited on our last European tour. We spent a night in a cabin by the sea on the coast of a European country but we couldn’t believe how similar it was to Canada; drawing similarities to Northern Ontario. By the time we had left, we had seen a moose, the northern lights, and had been struck with the realization that ‘it was not all that different in the archipelago’.”
