Ron Hawkins "Peace and Quiet" (video)
Published Feb 03, 2015Lowest of the Low frontman Ron Hawkins returns in solo form, with his latest offering Garden Songs hitting shelves today (February 3). But before you head out to grab the disc, you can check out his brand new video for "Peace and Quiet" right here on Exclaim.ca.
The clip was directed by Richard Peirce and Chris Tait, and — just like the song's lyrics — pays tribute the alleyways, streets and neighbourhoods of Toronto. The bright lights and frigid temperatures of the Big Smoke feature prominently in the gorgeously shot clip. Shots of Kensington Market and Chinatown fade into nighttime, when Hawkins picks up his guitar and plays against a backdrop of the city's skyline.
In addition to the new music video, Hawkins has shared some behind-the-scenes footage, in which he discusses the influence of his hometown and the making-of the clip.
Garden Songs arrives via Pheromone Records. Check out the premiere of both videos below.
