Powerhouse nonet Turkuaz debuted their brand new video for “Superstatic”
“From the inception stage of us writing and recording this song, it was always about capturing the vibrant energy of what we aim to do as a band,” shared Turkuaz guitarist/vocalist Dave Brandwein, who produced the video. “It’s a throwback to some of our favorite music of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, but with our own Turkuaz spin. The hope in creating the video was to take that energy and run with it. Though we’ve done videos in the past, we hadn’t successfully captured the various personalities of each member, or visual elements of our live show. I think we achieved this via an explosion of colorful fun and imagination, thanks to the amazing team that put it all together.”
The song comes from last year’s studio record, Life In The City, and was shot in the band’s hometown of Brooklyn, NY at the borough’s famed venue, Brooklyn Bowl.
Directed by Dani Brandwein and Jocelyn Pierce, “Superstatic” was shot in front of green screens and involved a number of personnel who banned together with their talents to create something wholly unique and true to the nature of Turkuaz. As Dani Brandwein shares, “Making ‘Superstatic’ in many ways represents the Turkuaz ethos as a whole: throwing everyone’s resources and talents together to create something that hopefully brings people joy – with an extra sprinkling of strangeness. I still can’t believe we turned Brooklyn Bowl into a green screen studio. I wonder if the band that was sound checking that Monday afternoon will ever see this!?”
