ver the years, I've made no secret of how attractive I find the members of BLUE MOVIE/BLACK FILM. Lean, mean and gorgeous, they've got a look that lends itself well to music video. For BLUE MOVIE/BLACK FILM, it's all about forging an uncommon sound - one marked by progressive metal, dance and goth flourishes. It's a sound that they've been mining successfully since I've known this New York City-based band and that was when they were simply called BLUE MOVIE. In that time, guitarist TONY PARIS and drummer LISA FOERDERER have been the constants. Current vocalist ANTHONY NOTO has been with the band for a few years now and has given the band's DARK HORSE COMICS feel a rock n roll spit shine. The creative triumvirate is back with their new album BROKEN MACHINES and the single THE COLD SONG is getting it's official premiere here at ROCKWIRED.COM.
THE COLD SONG has all of the hallmarks we've come to expect from a BLUE MOVIE/BLACK FILM music video. According to guitarist TONY PARIS, the song was originally envisioned a dark Holiday-themed song. "I came up with the idea two years ago and I was going to record it with some other side project, but it ended up not working out so I thought about making it this dark Holiday song."
The timing for the release of the single and music video couldn't have worked out more perfectly, with Halloween less than a week away and retail outlets starting their big Holiday kick. When asked why this song was selected for a video, lead vocalist ANTHONY NOTO said: "Honestly, It kind of came naturally. The first video we released from the album was PRISONER, but this is actually the first video that we made for this album. It was just an idea that we had early on. The idea for the video got spawned initially because THE COLD SONG was actually the first song that we wrote for this album. It felt logical. It was just a natural progression for us."
According to NOTO, production of the video was an inside job."It was all done internally." said NOTO "It was me and DAVID who was our bass player at the time. DAVID shot it all and with the help of my sister and my girlfriend, we made the costumes from scratch, put together the story and shot it at TONY's place in Pennsylvania."
