When a Good Friend Makes a Video for You

Girl lighting a match and smiling

We’re very happy to announce that our good friends Ryan and Justin were inspired to create a video for Maheekats’ song The Emptiness.

Here’s what Ryan says…

this video is my love letter to the maheekats, a band that is new to town, having recently migrated from ojai. bassist casey and guitarist/vocalist clara moved here as a duo and then added drummer grace and an additional guitar player by the name of marvin domingeuz, who happens to also play in the fantastic sb band moonblast. since then they have been playing heartbreakingly beautiful sets all over town. maheekats make lovely shoegazer/dreampop songs, and they remind me of bands like the cocteau twins and the pale saints. they recently recorded this song with marvin (who is also an awesome engineer/producer) and when i asked them if i could make a home-made video for them, this was the track they chose. i listened to it, and loved it and immediately knew how i wanted to approach it. hope you all enjoy the song and the accompanying film!

The Emptiness is a song about the faerie people (Sidhe) and the tunnel our spirits use to travel from this world to the next.

Lyrics:
Sidhe and reality
Live side by side in a rooty tree
Where God and the dirt of the earth meet
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there

Sidhe and reality
Hold one another so pruriently
Then God quietly understands
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there
Like I’m already there

I know I’ve seen you before Love!
I know I’ve seen you before Love!

Sidhe and reality
Live on and on today
Ruthlessly lighting the eyes in the minds of all
So the story goes
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen
All I want to do is see the tunnel open up inside
All I want to do is feel the emptiness happen like I’m already there

Maheekats Third Full-Length Release Phosphorus Man

Maheekats Phosphorus Man Album Cover

“This is one of those rare releases that is truly hitting on all cylinders. The music is clever and melodic, and Clara’s singing sounds confident and unrestrained, and cuts right to your soul. The gravity of the music hits you right out of the gate with “The Emptiness”. Other highlights are the urgent sounding “Dungeon” the triumphant “Dragon”, the music box-like “Willie Mangle Blue Cheese” and my favorite “Moon”, which puts a lump in your throat with its moody guitar intro, and its intimate, heart felt lyrics, like any good hors d’oeuvre it really leaves you wanting more. This is a must for any collection, and is one of those albums that will forever define the moment you first heard it.”

The album is available as a CD as well as a Download.

Maheekats Debut Release: God Has a Cadillac Too

Maheekats God Has a Cadillac Too Album Cover

“makes me think of flying dreams, air conditioning and convertible Porsches. That is to say it transports me someplace cool. Day dreamy and breezy without being vacuous, it leaves space to reflect and breathe, giving the music at times a meditative groove. Torchy, lush vocals and lingering melodies sparkle like the California coast on a perfect day; a landscape the musicians are obviously familiar with. Hailing from Maheeland, a mystical portal to other dimensions” Michel Cicero
