The Silent Comedy have just created a video for their rare song, “Purple Heart,” and they were kind enough to give us the first look. The live session was shot during the band’s recent Summer Sweat tour at the Penner-Ash Wine Cellars in Newberg, OR, and the winery’s expansive acoustics lend the perfect backdrop to the song’s quiet power.
The video serves as a well timed moment of reflection for The Silent Comedy, whose hectic summer has included the afore-mentioned tour and a performance at last week’s San Diego Music Awards, where they also took home the Best Pop Band award for the second year in a row.
Of course, anyone who knows the bearded gentlemen of The Silent Comedy knows they never sit still for long. The band will soon head out to Georgia, WA to play a highly anticipated show with The Dave Matthews Band, Gogol Bordello, The Roots, Devotchka, Fruit Bats, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Josh Ritter.
