Maybe We’ll Riot: YUCA Tells All

"Maybe We'll Riot" video shoot ends with visit from Canadian police.

“Maybe We’ll Riot” video shoot ends with visit from Canadian police.

 

There’s always something new going on with fast-rising indie bands.  They’re the busiest people on earth.  So, it should come as no surprise that successful active rock band, YUCA, released another killer single on March 24th: “Maybe We’ll Riot”.

Over the past week, Matt, Andy and Dave have been busy in production for the corresponding music video.  Ironic, given the name of the song, that the police showed up and showed some muscle!  Okay, maybe it was all fun and games but the point of the song – and the video – is taking back the reigns of your own life – being the YOU that you really are.  YUCA celebrates individuality and breaking away from everything that keeps you from being real.

We spoke with Matt Borck, lead singer about the details.  His take on things is always profound and insightful.  He also shared some juicy information about the band, new tours and where inspiration comes from.

We’ll bring you the video soon as it drops.  In the meantime, enjoy their killer video for “I’m Alive She Said”.  Shot in Tokyo while on tour in Japan, this video takes in the nightlife of this beautiful and exotic city.  Make sure to watch the faces of the people in the crowd.  They didn’t expect to be a part of a music video!

We’re always looking for new ways to help independent bands reach a larger audience.

Yesterday I found a really cool Tweet at @NewDriven from a new band to our show, Stillman.

Stillman

The tweet got me thinking about something that had crossed my mind the week before while I was taping the EXCESS show – somehow doing a show segment that was based upon music video’s.
After mulling it over, this is what we’re going to do:
The EXCESS show will now feature a YouTube video playlist segment where we’ll spin the music based upon the playlists we create on YouTube.  Band interviews will be based on the video’s as well.  Our audience will have the opportunity to learn the back story to the video’s as well as get to know their favorite bands better.
We’ll be looking for professionally produced video with exceptional music. That doesn’t mean the video had to cost thousands of dollars to produce. It means it has to be a cool and interesting concept, (video), pulled off VERY well.
