Legendary Melbourne trio Something for Kate share the video for Blue Bird, the latest single to be lifted from their Top 5, critically acclaimed album, The Modern Medieval.
Blue Bird, featuring the gorgeous backing vocals of Melbourne songstress, Mia Wray, is a swaggering anthem that celebrates those moments where you find a good friend and a good bar to hide away from the world.
In classic Something For Kate style, where every line speaks volumes and tells a multilayered story with novelistic detail and barbed wit, you can hum along with this glorious bittersweet melody even as the song hits you hard.
“Gonna buy my drink another drink” is another classic Paul Dempsey line in a song brimming with wry observations on modern life.
“Sometimes you have to get he hell off social media and actually go and socialize. This is a song about switching off from all the repetitive, hollow language and actually talking to a friend over several drinks” says Paul Dempsey
Directed by Alex Badham, the video features two Paul Dempsey clones on a mission to find the real Dempsey in somewhat of a 70’s Australiana Sci Fi day dream/nightmare.
