After months and months and months and months of waiting, Carney has finally released their video for “Love Me Chase Me” and it was definitely worth the wait.
You guys might remember them if you caught them this summer on the road with the Veronicas or Gov’t Mule, OR you might have heard of them after it was announced that Reeve got the role of Spiderman in the Broadway musical being directed by Julie Taymor. But if this is your first time witnessing their genius then please prepare yourself. In order to fully understand Carney, blend together Jeff Buckley in the form of lead singer Reeve Carney then add in the music of Zeppelin or Skynard mixed in with some randomness like the Beatles and you have the band who’s sound is extremely hard to pin down.
And yes, that IS Evan Rachel Wood, who will be playing the part of Mary Jane on Broadway, in the video. Girl is fierce. Personally I love that in a year when MTV is not playing videos anymore and the art is a dying form, that bands like Carney and singers like Lady Gaga (yes I am comparing the two) are actually concerned with making concept driven videos that appeal to their fans.
But what are your thoughts on the video? Anyone love it?
Also one more thing: Zane and Reeve have a younger sister, Paris, who also has some incredible music that you can listen to myspace.com/pariscarneymusic CARNEY can be found at myspace.com/carneythe band and Twitter (names: reevecarney, zanecarney, aidenplaysbass, jonnyepcat)
