Our newest video was a lot of fun to make, and while it doesn’t accurately represent our decision-making process, there was some reality mixed in:
Firstly, we’ll be shying away from full-length parodies for the time being. Taking tunes from other artists in a legal grey area, and doing it by the books usually involves a lengthy and expensive licensing process. We’ll still be very conscious of keeping our music positive and/or educational, but the medium for our message will probably not be the tunes you hear on the radio. So no, there will be no full-length “Sukkos Style” video, even though we may someday return to making fun and meaningful holiday parodies.
Secondly, we are actually working on some original tunes. Covers are fun and easy, and sometimes interpreting someone else’s work can be very rewarding, but we are very excited for this new challenge. This is a new frontier for us, and we hope that this will be a jump to the next level as artists.
Finally, we will never dance in another video again. Promise.
