With debut EP ‘Cuntry Covers Vol. 1’ arriving on Friday 24th September, Bria are sharing new single ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’.
“Deciding to record ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore’ happened on a kind of whim,” Bria Salmena explains. “Duncan and I are both big Scott Walker fans and knew we wanted to cover something from his catalog. ‘Sun…’ was the first one of his we tried. Drawn to the melancholic nuances of The Walker Brothers’ vocal delivery, I really wanted to see if I could try and emulate that from my own experiences. The root of this cover for us is the drum machine pattern. Once we stumbled upon that, the guts of it came together surprisingly quick and we ran with it.”
Accompanied by a video shot at a friend’s farmland in the country, director Andrew Matthews says, “We were all struck by the dilapidated beauty of the property and decided to create a series of tableaus, hoping to capture the spirit of the place and our time there. The decaying, sun-baked farm seemed a good companion to the song.”
