London based Patch & The Giant have unveiled a video for their new song ‘For Gabriel’ which is our Song of the Day. This band never ceases to amaze and their inventiveness stretches right through their music and to their videos. This one was directed, filmed and edited by Andrew AB.
Band member Angie reveals the real story behind the song:
This is a song which came into being as an apology for an accident for which we will admit and be plagued by eternal guilt: the time Luke and me consumed more than the recommended quantity of ale and left Gabe’s violin in a taxi, never to be found. Gabe, being the nicest human we know, decided to forgive us and continue life as both our friend and fiddler. For this, we love him even more. Guilt ridden and thankful to the bottom of our hearts for the friendship of this brilliant man, we wrote this song, For Gabriel.
