Communicating Vessels recording artist The Grenadines are currently making a name for themselves in the underground music scene thanks to both amazing live shows and the praise from producers such as Andy LeMaster who has worked with Bright Eyes, Jim Eno of the beloved Spoon, and Lynn Bridges, all of whom have produced tracks for the band. HIP Video Promo is proud present the new clip, “Shake”, the first single off their self-titled release.

The Grenadines, fronted by husband and wife Michael and Lauren Shakelford and featuring guitarist David Swatzell recently released their self-titled album which is described as “dream-drenched rock-and-roll cut through a southern lens.” The album creates a wide spectrum of sounds that are haunting, yet methodical, with occasional hints of Mazzy Star, M83 and even bursts of The Whitest Boy Alive.

Touring with acts such as Jenny Lewis, White Denim, Maria Taylor, and Bear in Heaven, The Grenadines complete their live performances with their mesmerizing on-stage presence. Jeffrey Cain who is known for his work with bands such as Isidore, The Great Book of John, and Remy Zero produced “Shake”. As the lead track, the song is “a taut and slinky disco duet perfect for your Indian summer dance party.”

This video, comical yet satirical in its’ approach, blends contemporary beats with rhythms that literally make the viewer want to dance. The seemingly deviant lead character is a young man who obsessively videotapes a young woman through her bedroom window as she dances. While it is understood by everyone else just how creepy his actions may seem, the two characters are instinctively connected throughout “Shake.”

“Shake” is a mere introduction to the raw and audacious self-titled album by The Grenadines. We are pleased to once again be working with the crew at Communicating Vessels and we’re here to hook you up with anything you may need to get this video into your programming.
