Published Dec 03, 2014Regina's Rah Rah know a thing or two about harsh prairie winters, though they're trying to keep things as positive as possible on their recent single "Good Winter." Now the tune has received some accompanying — and totally in season — visuals.
The clip features old-timey footage of winter fun like tobogganing, curling and snowball fights. It was directed by the band's friend and collaborator Colby Richardson.
"The overly nostalgic tone is meant to underline the dichotomy between the 'good winter' described in the song and the reality of the harsh cold, boredom and loneliness that, in actuality, accompanies a typical winter (particularly in our hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan)," said Marshall Burns in a previous statement about the new tune. "The song aims to be a reminder, to ourselves as much as anyone, of the unique and positive aspects of those cold, long winter months."
The track is set to appear on the band's forthcoming album Vessels, which is due out in March via Hidden Pony Records.
