Barcelona checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@barcelona) on Wednesday (July 22), reacting to the jolt of publicity they’ve received thanks to Jon Rawlinson using one of their songs on footage shot of the Kuroshio Sea, the main tank at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa, Japan. The Seattle, Washington indie pop band write:
Many of you have seen or heard about this amazing video that uses our song, Please Don’t Go. If you found us from that video, thanks for stopping by! If you haven’t seen this video yet, then watch it below. This thing has combined over 1 million views in the mere 7 days since its posting. As of this moment, 415k+ on YouTube, 320k+ on Vimeo and 370k+ on break.com.
Thanks to this video, and Jon Rawlinson, the director of the video, our album has been pushed back up the iTunes Rock Album charts and is holding strong thanks to all of you who watched the video and then purchased the album. This is an amazing boost coming off a nice 6 week break from the road.
Keep spreading this video to your friends and family. It is helping us tremendously!
We are grateful that Jon used our song and very grateful for everyone who continues to support what we’re doing. Below is the video followed by a video response we posted late last night.
We hope to see you all at a show very soon.
