The Strumbellas bring love at the End of an Era

The Strumbellas Raft hi res - photo credit Heather PollockThe new video for “End of an Era” from Toronto indie folk rockers The Strumbellas presents a revolving timeline of life’s ever changing eras.

The homemade looking video gives the viewer an impression of time moving forward at an exponential rate, constantly changing and adding new faces, instruments, and various props.

The song is the first single off their newest release (out today) titled We Still Move On Dance Floors. Other publications such as Exclaim.ca and Reddit have had it up prominently on their home page today as top news.

The video has garnered more than 70,000 views in less than two days. Pretty impressive for an under the radar Torontonian band that keeps its roots humble and modest.

Using classic composition techniques and a variety of instrumentation, the Strumbellas bring their take on folk rock back to the old school, but with a modern twist.

What gets you is the classical song writing and performing elements applied in the lyrics, the composition, and the video’s directing alike. It’s refreshing to see bands these days getting creative with what some might consider antiquated musical styling.

As the tune progresses, more and more fresh faces, different clothes, and consistently changing instruments appear around in a circle, that is created by the camera pivoting on a central axis.

Check it out.
