Calgary Beat: Crooked Spies “Waiting” video premiere

Friday 30th, June 2017 / 12:00

CALGARY – Calgary’s own Crooked Spies are set to premiere their debut music video for their single “Waiting.” Having previously released the song through online music blog IMVERYAPE, the video release comes in anticipation for their sophomore album due out September 2017.

A four piece group fronted by brothers Dylan and Steven Evanik, Crooked Spies’ music reflects their kinship, but remains raw and eclectic in nature. With songs that peer into the soul of classic rock and possess the political prowess of punk, it is the bond of brothers, and deep roots in blues that hold it all together. The cherry bomb on top comes from the thundering rhythm section of Aaron Samson and Mark Lawlor. Taking songwriting notes from the likes of The Raconteurs and The Black Keys it is clear that an emphasis is placed on diversifying parts and lyrics with meaning.

With soaring melodies and whimsical lyricism, ‘Waiting’ peers into the minds of listeners challenging them to ask self actualizing questions such as: “What do you want and what is holding you back?” With vocals reminiscent of Against Me! and Laura Jane Grace, the song has a clear thematic divide reflected in two diverse sections of the song. The first showcasing an upbeat driving rhythm, with the back half taking on an island punk demeanor. Thematically the song instills a sense of adventure leaving the audience asking, “What is it that I am waiting for?”

The video, compliments of Mjolnir Productions, is centered around the daily routines of the band members who find escape from the mundane at night through their shared love of music. The video highlights the group’s admiration for all things Calgary including shots of the architecturally beautiful Peace Bridge, Kensington’s Plaza theatre, and The Palomino Smokehouse, a live music staple of Calgary. A sense of levity throughout the end of the video gives the viewer a glimpse into the passionate and energetic live show the band has become known for.
Crooked Spies would like to thank The Palomino Smokehouse, Mjolnir Productions, the amazing volunteers, BeatRoute and everyone who has supported them over the years.
