Perth’s coastal sweethearts, South Summit have had an incredible year, and while it might be coming to an end, the band have still got plenty to share. With the release of ‘River Days’, the band scored spins across Triple J Unearthed, a feature on the station’s Instagram, and signed with coveted Australian agency Four Tone Artists, and now, they're looking to building on that momentum with the release of a brilliant new video.
Cementing their status as not only “ones to watch”, but as an act already inspiring and captivating audiences across the country, this fervor for South Summit culminated in a sold out single launch at Perth’s iconic Jack Rabbit Slims. A venue more accustomed to international acts & established artists, than the rapidly emerging fanbase that South Summit has impressively built in a brief amount of time, the performance was a statement of just how much potential the band holds.
The music video for ‘River Days’ captures this moment. The band taking to the stage in their most authentic form; humbled, eager and at their sharpest when sharing their craft with those who support them, riding the wave of a South Summit performance.
Isaiah Reuben explained, “South Summit’s all about family, love and peace through the expression of art, and this video shows that! Our debut music video is an introduction to South Summit and we’re truly grateful for for what the team has captured."
“It was by far the biggest gig we have ever played, and was an incredible feeling to see so many faces that came to listen to our music. I’m so stoked about having the show filmed and put together into an amazing video, I can relive that moment and that feeling anytime,” Fynn Samorali added.
‘River Days’ is a breakout track for the 5-piece, who spent weeks with producer Dave Parkin refining the track, ensuring it retained the raw emotion of the initial demo. Catchy, heartfelt and memorable ‘River Days’ is a groove that demands attention, grabbing audiences by the hand and taking them on a sonic journey with a winding narrative. With Dave Parkin’s guidance the band was able to take the song up another notch, crafting an instant classic behind singer Zaya’s earnest storytelling.
