I think this is probably the first time in a while that I’ve watched a music video about a couple in love and come away thinking ‘that was really beautiful’. Not that I’m a hard-nosed person it’s just that such films are often contrived and it’s difficult to capture that genuine warmth. I recommend you watch the video The Daydream Club‘s Saltwater before reading the rest of this post, it was produced by WeTheConspirators:
And this is where you get the extra magic:
The Daydream Club’s Adam Pickering surprised his musical soulmate Paula Walker by asking her to marry him during the video shoot for their new single Saltwater.
Adam explains… “I’d been thinking ahead to the future and while filming the video for Saltwater I realised that I would probably never have a more perfect opportunity to do it. Paula and I had our first official date at Formby Beach in Liverpool. It’s an absolutely beautiful place, so I suggested it to Paula as a shoot location (secretly thinking that it’s the ideal place to pop the question). I had the perfect musical backdrop, meaningful setting and even sparklers…
After initial confusion from Paula, (she thought it was a strange scene that I hadn’t told her about), she eventually realised it was a genuine moment and thankfully said yes.”
Saltwater is their love song, Adam & Paula explain… “It’s about finding your soul-mate, the person you fit so perfectly with that you move together through life as one fluid entity.”
“You are salt and I the water, and now we are the ocean, we move in fluid motion”
Saltwater is set for release on Monday 16th March, and is the first of three new singles with the plan to follow up with a deluxe album release.
