“Elderflowers was one of those songs written in just a few minutes, on the back of an old guitar string packet,” explains Gerald Clarke about his new music video.
“There was a huge thunderstorm coming in and we were sitting in a cottage out in the woods outside a little town called Třebíč in Czech Republic. This song captures the absolute bliss of a lovers’ quest in the eye of the storm – that pure moment when love seems so simple. It was my first song written abroad; I have been working on a new album since which I plan to record and release in 2021.”
The music video that accompanies the track was shot on location in Prague and in the Morava region of the Czech Republic during autumn of last year.
The whole thing was conceptualised, shot and directed by Gerald’s talented friends Konrad Raubenheimer and Danielle McDonald from AWEMYBRU, who flew over to visit him from Belgium the weekend the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup.
“The video contains some beautiful footage of the magic that is Prague, as well as the charms of the countryside and my lovely fiancé Radka, who stars as the character who leads the viewer through these mesmerising spaces. It took us a long time to release the video and we are happy to share it with the world,” Gerald enthuses.
South African and international fans alike can look forward to a live streaming show straight from the artist’s current residence in Třebíč in the Czech Republic on Wednesday 28 October at 20:00 CAT, featuring a playlist that spans Clark’s trademark atmospheric blues covers, toe-tapping hits from all 5 his albums, as well as a few fresh new jams that will officially hit the airwaves in 2021.
