Boomkat are out with the music video to their new single ‘Lonely Child’, off Kellin and Taryn Manning’s second studio album ‘A Million Trillion Stars’, out now on Little Vanilla Records.
The duo had this to say about the video on their blog at MySpace:
Lonely Child is our most cherished and meaningful video to date. The video was directed by Justin Coloma (Smashing Pumpkins,Linda Strawberry, Eagles of Death Metal) and produced by Megan Duffy (Smashing Pumpkins, Matthew Wilder). Our biggest inspiration for writing this song was our dad who is no longer with us. If it weren’t for him, my brother Kellin and I would not be the artists we are today. While we were just young kids, it was our dad who introduced us to Motown, the Philly sound, and classic rock n roll. We had many opportunities to watch his band rehearsals and even were allowed at some of the gigs he played all over the Washington D.C. area and up down the east coast! He was an amazing lead vocalist and musician who could play the Hammond B3 organ, piano, drums and practically any instrument he picked up! During his career, he was in some of the most popular bands in the area, was signed twice to a record deal, and in his later years performed as a solo artist playing the piano and singing his heart out. His sudden and untimely death broke our hearts in pieces, but ultimately fueled our own creative passions. In this video you will see photos of him superimposed on a frame that Kellin and I are holding. It’s our way of paying him love n respect for passing down the musical talent that we hold dear to this day. We hope you enjoy our latest single off our record “a million trillion stars”
