Southern California’s Eve 6 released the official video for “Victoria” – their first single in nearly a decade – exclusively to VEVO.
If “Here’s To The Night” was the nostalgic theme song to your high school graduation, “Victoria” is the bitter soundtrack to your paranoid relationship.
Along with references to vampires, tequila and Italian guys, the lyrics call out Chris Martin’s Coldplay as a dance mix worth groovin’ to.
In the video, front-man and bassist Max Collins is ditched by his bikini-clad girlfriend in favor of body shots and flaming piñatas at a Dia de los Muertos style party on the beach. The lesson? Don’t trust girls with rockin’ cassette iPhone cases – or, you always get caught in the end.
From veteran director Bill Fishman, who’s resume stretches from New Edition to Train, this may be one of the first music videos to show off Apple’s FaceTime app.
It’s been a tumultuous 14-year career for Eve 6 since they released their debut hit “Inside Out” in 1998. The group has changed line-ups, split up, and gotten back together – but now the forming trio are set to release their fourth studio album Speak In Code on April 24th.
