Last week saw the release a brand new music video for DECEMBER STREETS for their single I’LL TRY, which is currently climbing the chart shows on the country’s major radio stations. The video was shot over the course of one day by Lourens Smit and directed by Tristan Coetzee of Run Jump Fly Creations, who also came up with the concept of the video.
The video aims to visually express the meaning of the song, which talks about being supportive and a shoulder to cry on for someone who is down and out. A person you care for who is in need of your support.
Being an upbeat and happy song, the band decided to mix the happy energy into a narrative which can usually be quite sad. It follows the story of a young girl who grows up next to her mother who is in a coma, always keeping the flame burning and hope strong, trying to entertain and keep her mom company. She never gives up on her over the years – it really gives you the feels deep down.
We’ve always had a soft spot for December Streets and now if it’s possible we dig them even more! #LocalIsLekker
