Over the weekend, we Twisted Twins had the esteemed pleasure of working on two music videos for the Scarlet Ending, an incredible New York band, directed by CJ Wallis. If you don't know him by now, *cough, Goody Two Shoes, cough, Dead Hooker*, shame on you. Seriously. Go sit in the corner and let the grown ups talk. As for the rest of you, read on...
Though the content of the videos are hush hush for the time being, I CAN tell you that these videos will blow your mind grapes. You ought to keep a close eye on FortyFPS Productions for all the details and the release dates.
As for the Scarlet Ending, who may these wondrous musicians be? Glad you asked.
In their own words...
"The music scene in Syracuse, New York is a snow globe that has been turned upside down and shaken by a new sound. That sound is coming from The Scarlet Ending, a six piece band that is stretching the confines of genre. Loosely defined as indie rock, The Scarlet Ending offers a blend of pop with cabaret, the grit of dive bar rock with the charms of three part harmony. This unique personality comes through in the angelic yet unforgiving voices of sisters Kaleena and Kayleigh Goldsworthy. These two command the stage while playing piano and guitar respectively, in addition to violin, melodica, and a pawn shop of other instruments. The theatricality of the girls is supported with a backbone of innovative musicians. Guitarist Jon Tedd and Cellist Jess Hafner compliment the layers of sound while Bassist Aaron Garritillo and drummer Nicholas Streeter syncopate and carry each song to their full potential.
The Scarlet Ending has received recognition both home and abroad, beginning with their debut EP which earned them a Syracuse Area Music Award for Best Pop Record of 2005. Their follow up full length, Cries and Whispers, saw the release of “The Way We Used To Be” which was featured on MTV’s The Hills. Since this breakthrough, the band has been active touring in the United States as well as seeing time in Greenland, Germany, and The Middle East as members of the Armed Forces Entertainment roster. This upswing of exposure has made The Scarlet Ending an unrelenting force. With the release of "Ghosts" in April 2010, featuring Will Noon on drums (of Straylight Run and Breaking Pangea), The Scarlet Ending is ready to expand their fan base, and share the rare promise and potential they possess. The Scarlet Ending has never claimed to redefine the expectations of pop music, but they just might."
And may I just say that the Scarlet Ending is absolutely amazing. As people and artists. It was a real pleasure to meet fellow twins that are working their collective asses off for their art. It really shows. They are talented, brilliant, sweet, thoughtful, beautiful, and driven. I miss them already.
Stay tuned for the delicious unveiling...
