Today, we’re excited to help usher in New York City hard rock act The Shrieks’ brand new song/video, “Give Love.” The funkishly delightful new track marks the band’s first single off their impending new record, ‘Ode to Joe,’ which will be released this spring.
“Artists often speak of a state of mind when writing a song that feels like it’s always existed, and the artist is only a medium for it’s creation,” says bandleader Luis Accorsi regarding the fresh tune/clip. “This song is one of those. I really didn’t write it, something powerful took over me and the song was born.”
Accorsi continues to say, “Listen to the passion “The Shrieks” apply to a very essential musical progression. We put all the love we have into recording it for you. Our very smart manager chose this track as our first single from our new album, it’s right for the times we live in now. Our talented photographer William Semeraro, now in Oslo, staying at home, made this video in one day, a video that brings tears to your eyes, and love to your mind. We are witnessing the birth of a new enlightened era, where we understand that it’s one for all, all for one. We Love You!”
