A year after The 1930’s name change, Jonny Solari and Andrew Cameron as New Ancestors have celebrated with the release of yet another new music video. It’s the latest in a string of video releases from a band that have been hard at work following their relocation to Glasgow in the past year. Brother (I’ve Been There Before) is somewhat a stalwart of the band’s growing catalogue and should be familiar to anyone who has caught them live.
Shot and produced by James Cairns and Co at Grand Panda Productions, the video clings to the core sentiment of the song; the often complex relationship between brothers as they take their paths in life, but here it is delivered in its simplest form, through childhood and childhood activities.
Discussing the video Jonny Solari of New Ancestors elaborates:
“The song is basically about seeing someone that you care about being faced with the same problems and decisions to make as I did growing up, but hoping that they make better choices..
We decided to use children in the video because we liked the way it showed the relationship between the brothers which is something that can be lost as people grow older”
