Music Bloggery’s Song of the Week! [Version One]
The song has a similar tune to their previous single ‘Chevy Thunder’, which makes me slightly wary that their album will sound too similar. However, that doesn’t mean they’re not a good band! Secondly, I’m not sure if it’s on purpose or by coincidence but the album art for ‘Chevy Thunder’ was a building in the shape of a dome and the artwork for this single is a curved shape which acts as a kind of frame for the dome?
The music video for this song is not original, which they’ve made clear by the Anthony Kiedis (frontman for Red Hot Chili Peppers) quote ‘The desert – where all good music videos are made.’. The quote at the beginning and the little joke they make also at the beginning of the video shows the band has a good sense of humour and that they don’t take themselves too seriously, unlike many pretentious bands nowadays. On their Facebook page, they wrote: ‘Celestine is out now. Second best 99p you’ll spend this week #mcflurry’. Musicians by day, comedians by night!
Personally, the fact that in the video for ‘Chevy Thunder’ the frontman was reading Anthony Kiedis autobiography ‘Scar Tissue’ (which is an amazing book, by the way), and now in the video for ‘Celestine’ they’ve even quoted Kiedis, this makes me fall in love with them even more! This is because I’m a HUGE Red Hot Chili Peppers fan, if you didn’t know already.
