The Shilohs, ‘English Roads’ – Video Premiere
Vancouver-based indie rockers the Shilohs have released a new video for their catchy song ‘English Roads,’ and Diffuser.fm is stoked to host the exclusive premiere. Although the clip (watch above) tells a rather frustrating story of love gone wrong, its alluring scenery, paired with the tune’s invigorating vocals, make for a thoroughly enjoyable (albeit dreamlike) experience.
“This is based on a dream I had,” the Shilohs’ Johnny Payne says of the video. “I was walking home drunk, very late at night in Vancouver, and I stumbled upon a couple of young dudes playing basketball. I joined in, shared their red wine, played some horse, but I just couldn’t make a basket. I was throwing up bricks all over the place. Eventually it seemed like they wanted me to leave so I set off into the night … Oh, and I was in love with a girl who didn’t love me.”
‘English Roads’ is from their debut album, ‘So Wild,’ which dropped back in February via Light Organ Records. Click here to buy the disc on iTunes.
