State Society Releases New Video

“Powerful, passionate and inspiring” is what fans have been saying about the release of the new single ‘Beautiful Day’ by State Society, which was unleashed online via their Sound Cloud two weeks back. Written by the band and recorded by David Grevler (ex-Wrestlerish) at Anti-Motion Studios, ‘Beautiful Day’ is the first release after the debut album “This Life” dropped in late 2012.

Featuring footage taken by Lain Glossop, ‘Beautiful Day’ is a perfectly crafted depiction of what a beautiful day should be. “We wanted a music video that depicts exactly what the most beautiful day would be like. The original footage filmed and supplied by Lain is perfect for the message the song conveys. The song is all about enjoying the everyday beauty life has to offer and the visuals show off what our amazing country boasts for anyone to enjoy. From the depths of the ocean to the top of a mountain, fans are in for a visual extravaganza of nature when viewing the video,” says Marchant Pretorius, guitarist for State Society.
