(July 20, 2017 – Atlanta, GA) – Rock quintet Vault 51 has released a music video for their new single “Wildfire“. The colorful aesthetic reoccurs in the band’s new video, along with trippy camera effects which represent time slipping by.
“Wildfire, at its core, is a song about a relationship. For us, the song was less about a romantic relationship, and more about the relationship we had with our label, our EP, and everything we’ve been through. The video begins with me staring into a clock as it’s melting away in my hands. That clock is actually the exact same clock we have on the cover of our album and is essentially a representation of the EP in itself. In this scene, time is practically slipping through my fingers as if to represent the amount of time that went into the entire process of actually being able to release our music. So much of our time was completely wasted and taken from us. We were forced into a situation where we could either give up, or rebuild and start over. That’s exactly what we decided to do.”
-Landon Jones (Vocalist)
The song comes from their debut EP titled, Kid which is out now. You can stream Kid on Apple Music, Spotify and watch the full visual of the EP here.
“’Kid’ basically is a resemblance of our youth and innocence. This EP is essentially the story about the start of someone’s life and how in the beginning — it seems so easy. We don’t truly understand until you’ve grown and woken up to the fact that the world (society as a whole, politics, and mass media) is so plagued with corruption and slander. It just makes you want to return to a simpler time when you were younger, and indifferent to time– When you were just a ‘Kid’.” -Alex Garmon (Bassist)
