Our feature video today comes from married musical duo Allan and Barb Vest, better known as doubleVEE. The couple, who have been playing together since 2012, and married since 2015, are both highly successful musicians inside and outside of doubleVee.
Barb has worked 16 years in public radio writing, hosting and producing “Filmscapes” a nationally syndicated film music program, and Allan, who used to be the primary songwriter and vocalist for the indie/orchestral pop band “Starlight Mints”, now creates instrumental scores.
The video, shot in a home recording style gives us serious White Stripes vibes, mixing new wave and garage band sounds and layering kaleidoscope filters over some of the shots. According to the band, it “takes a peek at a man who lives his life like a king until he realizes he’s his own worst enemy…it’s a rallying cry for peace and the ending of greedy schemes” and is demonstrated with Allan Vest as the man who seems at peace but is always spying on others.
doubleVee’s second album “Songs for Birds and Bats” is out today! Check it out here:
