This was our first video, it was filmed and directed by our friends Adriaan Louw and Imran Hamdulay, up in the attic of City Varsity, Cape Town, South Africa.
We celebrated the launch of “Dead Man’s Waltz” with a show at Die Mystic Boer in Stellenbosch.
We did not know what to expect when we sent it in to MK (South Africa's Music television channel), but it debuted at number 8 on the MK top 10, and eventually reached number 3, where it stayed for 2 weeks before making it's way back down the chart. We were all pleasantly surprised by this video's success, as this song was never intended as a single. We chose to make a video for this song simply because it was our favourite song on the EP.
