Emerging Canadian pop duo Via Barcelonia are back with a new video for their track “Somebody”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Filmed in Kelowna, B.C., and shot by Lee Watkins, the video is inspired by the Paul Simon “Call Me Al” video.
“We wrote the song in a way that it almost speaks to us,” says the band. “Challenging ourselves to recognize the importance of relationships over perfection and over goals…the video, shot in a quirky and fun ‘one shot’ kind of way, demonstrates Taylor looking to have fun which initially challenges Andrew who’s trying to get it ‘perfect’.”
Comprised of Platinum-selling, international recording artist Andrew Allen and percussionist, vocalist, and producer Taylor McKnight, Via Barcelonia sets out to create pop-influenced world music with a nod to the music of the past and a leap into the music of the future. The duo released their debut single “Just Wanna Dance” in 2018 which reached over 40,000 streams in the first week. Following the success of their hit single, they released their debut EP in 2019, earning them a FACTOR grant for their upcoming EP release.
Via Barcelonia has headlined for events including the Richmond World Music Festival, Parks Alive, Harmony Arts Festival, BX Press Cidery, Metabridge Teach Event, and Sun FM Boat Cruise, and have co-written songs with multi-platinum songwriters and productions by JUNO award-winning producers.
