Today Kidbug share ‘Together’, the third track from their self-titled debut album, out May 22, 2020, on Joyful Noise Recordings.
The video for Together is a neo-gothic love story starring band members Marina Tadic and Adam Harding. As ghosts they travel hand-in-hand across time and space through dreamlike landscapes, from a haunted house with a black cat, to an Indiana pumpkin patch, to an old Dutch graveyard, and beyond.
Co-directed by Harding and Tadic, the making of the video was a collaborative process for the pair, as is all of Kidbug’s music and artwork. It was edited both together and apart, with filming taking place in Indiana, The Netherlands, and the clouds in between.
Says Tadic: “As the song title suggests, we were together when we wrote ‘Together’ together. The song is about cosmic connection, unity, intuition and peace which we translated to symbolic images for this video.” Harding adds “I came up with the chord progression for ‘Together’ while trying to remember how to play our song ‘Lovesick’. Marina suggested that I should maybe try to forget how to play ‘Together’ and trick myself into coming up with another new song.”
