Charlene Kaye‘s music is at once classic and contemporary, a mix of glam rock and classical music in just the right measures. In her new video for “Forever Is A Long Time,” she takes a darker turn.
“I wanted do a ballsy rock video, something that would really capture the chaos and panic of the song,” Kaye explained to VH1. “Liam (White, the video’s director) got a bunch of public access footage and projected it over us, and if you look closely you can see that there are two narratives going on- one of the past, and of the present, which is something I think is really beautiful and relevant to the song. The shots range from bombs raining down during WWII to old circus acts in the 1920s to the Hindenberg exploding, so there’s no lack of things to look at!”
“Forever Is A Long Time” is the third song off her most recent, Kickstarter-funded album, Animal Love, to get a music video, and is definitely less sunshine and hope than Kaye’s previous tracks.
