1.)Hi guys! What was the band’s inspiration for the “Neck Tattoos” video?
Hey back! For “Neck Tattoos” Paul (lead singer and guitar) wanted to do a “one shot” music video. So we had a great parameter to work with for this first video. Max (guitar, backup vocals and co-director) likes to put new spins on an old standard. So with “Neck Tattoos” the one shot feel ends up being the new take on what is a day in the life of a person going through emotional strife, needing to get out of their house and heading to a party. We also liked the idea of using a female lead (Katrina Abreu) as Paul uses a lot of non gender specific pronouns in his lyrics. Stephen Emerick (Director, Filmer, editer) was huge in further developing the plot along side Max and his filming and editing really brought the video home. Also huge shout out to the one man lighting machine, Will Armstrong for lighting every space in the video. It was a lot of fun creating the video and bringing together all the elements to present something we are truly proud of.
2.) Why did you choose to create a video for “Neck Tattoos”?
Neck Tattoos was the first official single we ever released and with our full length nearly complete we really wanted to put out a video for our friends and fans.
3.) Will you be releasing any other music videos in the near future?
We have already filmed a second video and have plans for 3 more on top of that that will all be making their way to the internet starting in spring!
4.) What can you tell us about your upcoming LP?
Our debut full length “Perfectly Temporary” is a collection of songs written by Paul that Max fell in love with when they were on a road trip in late 2017. The songs are straightforward nostalgic feeling anthems that speak on drug use, suicide and suicide prevention, abuse, relationships and life. Beyond that they show what a group of people can do when they support one another in making dreams come to life. We all have become very close in Live Well, it’s stemmed from our love for Paul’s songs but has become so much more than that. We have all had hard conversations about our own lives and journeys brought out by Paul’s songs and all have supported each other in that. It’s really amazing what a group of friends can do when they come around a common goal in an open and honest way. “Perfectly Temporary” should leave everyone feeling that love and honesty with every song.
5.) Is “Neck Tattoos” a good representation of the sound we’ll hear on the LP?
In some ways for sure, but also “Perfectly Temporary” will have other songs with much different soundscapes, tempos and feel; from the happiest uptempo song, to heavy songs with hardships, to slow and just sad tracks.
