Published Jan 24, 2020This year, singer-songwriter Blaze Velluto will release sophomore album We Are Sunshine as the Blaze Velluto Collection, and Exclaim! is proud to premiere a first look at the Quebec City-based artist's latest with "Fish Mountain Part II."
The song arrives alongside a video helmed by co-directors Michael Japan and Steve Bawee, inviting viewers into the bright, pastel-coloured world of Velluto and his musical collaborators.
From there, it's about transformation through caffeination, but this situation doesn't call for your average cup of coffee. Velluto invites each of his gift-bearing bandmates in for a cup of psychedelic espresso, which transforms them into equally colourful characters who soon set off an a suitably escapist trip.
"Mike and Steve always say, 'Make sure to drink your coffee if you don't want to miss the bus,'" Velluto offered of his directors. "Life is strange but coffee makes up for it."
While a concrete release date has yet to be revealed, We Are Sunshine is set to arrive this year through Montreal's Dare to Care Records. The album will follow the Blaze Velluto Collection's 2017 debut Weatherman, which the label then reissued in 2018.
