Videos For a Lazy Sunday: Fast Romantics’ ‘Afterlife Blues’

Fast Romantics look the idea of death right in the face in the video for ‘Afterlife Blues’, the title tracks from Howard Redekopp-produced 2013 sophomore album.

The quirky video is filled with colourful and unique characters who will make you question life after death.

“Death can be a dirty word when you’re making pop music, but that’s kind of funny because death is one of the most universally pop concepts out there, seeing as how it happens to everyone. “Afterlife Blues” is a make-believe imagining of what happens when you die. Whether you’re celebrating a life well-lived, or you’re all full of lamentation and regrets… one thing’s for sure: death is gonna be weird,” the band said in a statement.

Since forming in Calgary in 2008, Fast Romantics have amassed a following thanks to their live shows and appearing at many major festivals including Virgin Fest, SXSW, NXNE, and CMJ. Their music has also appeared in TV shows including Shameless, Breaking In, Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars.
