Musician, author, painter, documentary maker. Seth Swirsky is a man of many talents, though it’s perhaps quite easy to say that music is his biggest passion. Having written songs for icons such as Tina Turner, Olivia Newton-John and Celine Dion – he also wrote the Taylor Dayne smash “Tell It To My Heart” – Swirsky’s ability to create catchy, seemingly timeless and classic songs is undeniable. Its a talent he’s continuing to share with the world via his new album ‘Songs from The Green Couch’.
His latest single, “Sunny Day”, is a catchy pop jangle with an air of The Beatles about it, and XS Noize are proud to premiere its video.
“I wanted the video to express just the pure joy of being alive!” Seth shares. “Girls playing tambourines, kaleidoscopes, ballerinas and sunny beaches all to the music of three guys just rocking out. I directed the video, which was shot last month in 16mm by Fred Joseph at Figment Sound Studios in Lake Hollywood, California, in the same studio where my new album, ‘Songs From the Green Couch’, was recorded. I always loved those Jimi Hendrix videos, during the ‘Summer of Luv’ in 1967, where you saw the riffs Jimi and his band were playing. I wanted the video to get that same ‘live’ feeling. Accompanying me in the video is Glenn Brigman on bass and Brendan Peleo-Lazar on drums, both in the band The Triptides. They played on the recording of the song as well.”
Asked what he hopes those who watch the video take from it, he adds: “I would love my fans to have the video inspire them just to kick back, listen to their favourite music – loud! – and just enjoy LIFE, with no worries. As I wrote in the lyrics of the chorus: ‘Who cares about time and space, just as long as there’s sun on my face!!'”
