WATCH HERE

Latvian indie band Carnival Youth have released a music video for their latest single “Love Is the Answer”.

The video shows members of the band travelling in time – it takes place in the Latvian seaside city of Liepaja at the beginning of 20th century. The set-up for it was made using a family photo archive by the video’s director Maris Lagzdins.

“It was our pleasure to work with the great Maris Lagzdins once again. He threw us in a time machine and we found ourselves 100 years earlier in time. It allowed us to see Liepaja city in a new light – through the eyes of people who lived a long time ago,” says Emils Kaupers, the main character of the video and member of Carnival Youth.

Video crew: Maris Lagzdiņš (director, editor), Jānis Indriks (DOP), Hardijs Cibulskis (DOP assistant), Video editor, Kaspars Vēvers (lighting), Kaspars Vilcāns (SDG), Liva Dresere (make up and style), Alise Danovska (cast). Production done by “fon Films” company.

This single marks the period between their latest release – an album with songs in their native Latvian called “Vienā vilcienā” – and the new, upcoming album, which will take them back to writing songs in English.

On their ongoing European tour Carnival Youth will visit Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Romania, Germany, France and England with more than 20 shows in the course of the next six weeks. Tickets and tour dates: www.carnivalyouth.com/tour.
