ABOUT THE VIDEO FOR " A THOUSAND MILES OF SAND"
MICHELLE - "In 2018 a mutual friend introduced us to Gabby Vessoni and Celo Oliveira, also known as the Brazilian duo FLEESH and we’ve been fortunate to collaborate with them on multiple occasions. This past summer we collaborated on our BRAVE song, "Candle In The Dark" which was originally released back in 2002. This newer version was beautifully re-crafted by FLEESH… they made it their own and we were happy to be a part of it. As BRAVE set out to release a new single we once again teamed up again with Gabby Vessoni from FLEESH who did an amazing job of creating a video and bringing out the themes of the song. "A Thousand Miles of Sand" has many references to isolation, which we wanted to convey in each of us playing the song separately, but then coming together through the television sets in the desert.”
SCOTT - "I had an idea for the video, but I wasn't sure if it would be possible. I have to say, I was so impressed how Gabby was able to pull this together. The concept was to include images of desert landscapes, and in the desert would be random discarded black and white TVs, which is where you would see us playing the song. I wanted the video to convey two separate worlds, essentially a digital one, and a real one. For me, it represents the physical distance we deal with as a band, and also how as a society it seems we're all co-living, communicating and partially existing in the virtual world."
MICHELLE -"Distance is a theme of the song and also a theme of the video. We each shot our own video footage separately in our own homes.
These days we "plug in" and record/write music because it's frequently difficult to get together in person since we don't live very close to one another. So we put on headphones, plug in to the computer and that's a way that we can all stay connected."
GABBY - "Really really happy to share this video!!! This is Brave's new single "A Thousand Miles of Sand"! It was an honor for me to create this, Brave's a very special band for me and Celo Oliveira and being part of this is something really unbelievable! Also, this is one of my favorites songs too!!!"
