New music: “Rising Sun” performed by Indistinct Chatter

Rising Sun is Dubbo band, Indistinct Chatter’s, take on the old folk song House of the Rising Sun. Rising Sun is in a soft rock ballad with orchestral elements, and a scorching guitar solo performed by Wez Thompson on a Gibson 1960 reissue Les Paul with Humbucker pickups. The amp was an ML Sound Lab Amp SIM of a Van Halen 5150 Mark 3 Head.

The music video has a stylised 1950s retro-Noir film and tells the story of a young couple whose life falls apart thanks to drinking, gambling and gangsters.

Director’s statement (Daniel Rutter)

“The Rising Sun video came about after I was approached by Mick, lead singer of Indistinct Chatter to direct the script for a music video written by Erifili Davis. The song was Rising Sun, a version of the old folk song, House of the Rising Sun.

“The concept of the video was rather interesting as Erifili had centered it around a 50s gangster feel, and I saw the opportunity to try a Noir style of filming. I’ve always wanted to do a noir film so this was my chance. While I strayed a little from the noir look, I felt it to be pretty close to my original vision.”
