WATCH NOW on YOUTUBE AT BlaCK MAGIC VIDEO
Watch the white hot new Black Magic video, the second single and video from Driving South by Highway 61 on Rum Bar Records. Produced and Directed by our very own Frank Meyer “Black Magic is one of the weirder, wilder and sexier videos I have directed, and perfectly fits the bluesy voodoo vibe of song.” says Meyer.
Huge, huge thanks to Big Take Over Magazine for hosting the Black Magic World Premiere at bigtakeover.com/news/video-premiere-black-magic-by-highway-61 and to everyone at Rum Bar Records and Wanted Management fo your tremendous support.
Los Angeles blues-rock four-piece Highway 61 have released the music video for the second single off the band’s debut album, Driving South on Rum Bar Records. The video was directed by the band’s frontman Frank Meyer, also known for his band’s The Streetwalkin’ Cheetahs and Trading Aces and his collaboration albums with the likes of Iggy and the Stooges guitarist James Williamson, Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman, and Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti.
The horror-meets-erotica clip features a fire breathing, dancing sexy witch cavorting through a dungeon after falling under the spells she cast from a mysterious book. The visuals fall right in line with Meyer’s love of horror movies. You can also see Meyer’s directing work in a pair of upcoming blood-soaked gore-themed videos he directed for legendary splatter-punk act The Dwarves.
Highway 61 deliver a creepy, delightful visual to accompany their killer new, taunting and crisp track “Black Magic”. “I don’t need you to love me.. I gotta do what I gotta do” Meyer opines as he and his band push through a catchy, deliberate rocknroll track with all the elements – it swings, it breathes, it’s professionally executed, has great backups and a standout guitar solo (a lost art).
