Bravestation, from Toronto, creates somewhat sonic, spacial music that’s very accessible to the everyman. Their new video for “White Wolves” is a little perplexing, at least initially. You get the impression there’s an impending doom ahead, and an unforeseen terror behind. You can see the panic in the woman’s eyes.
The band quotes Robert J. Hastings in their Facebook profile, stating:
“So, gently close the door on yesterday and throw the key away. It isn’t the burdens of today that drive men mad, but rather regret over yesterday and the fear of tomorrow. Regret and fear are twin thieves who would rob us of today.”
Their music embodies the presence of now, which we so often disregard, as Hastings puts it, for regret and fear. The video of “White Wolves”, then, represents (to me at least) the overcoming of yesterday’s regrets and tomorrow’s fears. And when you’re able to do that, you can finally be free.
