Music guru, Eric Alper, recently tweeted, “Try listening to different music genres to expand not only your creativity, but you might find your next favorite artist, too.”
We take Eric’s words to heart and while we here at Amplify the Noise do listen to everything that crosses our paths, we don’t necessarily dig everything that crosses our paths. For the music that we don’t like, we won’t be haters. There’s enough hate going around as Lord of the Lost have pointed out in their recent song and video, “Leave Your Hate in the Comments”.
But what we will do is amplify the noise and raise the frequency of the music we do like and Visions Of Atlantis is one of those bands. We won’t lie, we’re new to this band and we’re kind of pissed at ourselves for that. Because good god almighty, they are epic.
As Joey from Blossom would say, whoa…
Visions Of Atlantis are Clémentine Delauney and Michele Guaitoli on vocals, with Dushi Duscha on guitars, Herbert Glos on bass, and Thomas Caser on drums.
To announce their North American tour the band released the jolly good fun video for “Clocks” from their latest release, Pirates.
Clémentine says this of the video,
We are so excited to be able to release a video for ‘Clocks’ as we love this song and we noticed that it quickly became one of our fans’ favorites as well! We could tell from the crowd’s response every time we started to play this song live last year! So here is a fun portrait of what enjoying life as a pirate can be about, remembering the clock is ticking… Let’s all make a golden play out of 2023!
Michele further adds about the video,
We couldn’t have a better way to celebrate this new video release than with a tour announcement! Our 2023 won’t only start with our first headlining US tour, that will see The Spider Accomplice as special guests, but we’re also announcing another European round in cities we couldn’t reach during the previous run! Autumn Bride will join us for this new adventure…and believe it or not, more news will follow!
What blew us away was the power and strength of Clémentine Delauney’s astounding voice and how hers and Michele Guaitoli’s voice compliments each other perfectly.
Once you add the poetic flow of the guitar, bass, and drums to their voices, magic happens right before your ears and eyes.
“Clocks” is a beautiful and rousing symphonic masterpiece and as for the video, it captures a fun side of Visions Of Atlantis living their best pirate lives.
