Following the release of their debut album “Le succès par le travail”, Nova Scotian francophone power pop act Sluice unveils a video for “Électrique.”
Filmed over the course of an 18 hour day in the Acadian villages of Surette’s Island, Sluice Point, and Pubnico in Par-en-Bas on Nova Scotia’s south shore, the video plays like a love letter to the natural and geographic beauty of the region. Directed by Gavin Maclean, the clip expertly frames the pop-tinged post-punk track disguised in arrangements inspired by Taylor Swift whose lyrics marvel at the life-changing impact of attending DIY concerts at the local community hall.
Trevor Murphy, the musician at the helm of this new Acadian powerpop project, explains:
“Throughout the video you see shots of the Sluice Point Hall – an old schoolhouse that was used as a community hall when I was growing up. It was in this hall where I played one of my first shows, where I had my first kiss, where I started to figure out that my life would be centred around music. The song reflects the frenetic energy of being young and full of hope, of losing yourself in the bliss of existing, and of forging your own path towards your passion.”
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, now living in Montreal. I work in Marketing by day, and I’m an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
