The Virginmarys release new John Hughes inspired video for single ‘Where Are You Now?’

 


The Virginmarys new single ‘WHERE ARE YOU NOW? is their first release of 2023 coming off the back of their debut duo E.P release ‘Devil Keeps Coming’ in 2022.

Watch the official music video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BbwxQZW1bRs (inspired by the John Hughes movie 'Planes Trains and Automobiles')


Vocalist /Guitarist Ally Dickaty says: ”WHERE ARE YOU NOW? is a song about abandonment, the realisation of being totally alone. Throughout my life I’ve had a belief hovering in the background that there was a presence or force watching over me. In 2020 I fell very unwell, I have never been so ill in my life and thought I was possibly on my way out. It’s a song of despair, the realisation of my own mortality and how close that can be.”

The accompanying music video is a remake-parody based on John Hughes’ 1987 classic ‘Buddy-Road Movie: ‘PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES’.

Drummer Danny Dolan talks about the genesis of The Virginmarys and the new music video: “When I first met Ally at music college the love we both shared for this movie was the first thing we realised we had in common and could literally reel the script off by heart! Years on I realised similarities to the main 2 characters in relation to the journey me and Ally have been through being in a band together on tour was so strongly mirrored.

In the video Del and Neil are constantly travelling around from motel to motel all the while struggling with their luggage and belongings (in particular Del’s heavy ton chest!!!) Tensions build between the two throughout the movie and it’s a total love/hate relationship that forms. I think the concept totally mirrored what we and probably most bands go through especially in the current climate we find the music industry in. Some days you remember why you’re doing it, why you’re still in the game… other days you just simply. cannot stand the sight of each other!”

The new single ‘Where Are You Now?’ is a taste of what to come with a planned new studio album release in the works set for 2024.

The Virginmarys are currently out on the road for a mammoth 2 month support tour of Europe and the UK with The Sisters of Mercy.

Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
