‘Rubies, Diamonds and Pearls’ is the first video from the band’s latest album, Sugar Skull, which was released in late 2017.
Sleepy Driver have shared a new video for the track, Rubies, Diamonds and Pearls, off the group’s latest release, 2017’s Sugar Skull.
“I worked with Will Beatty of Apricity Media, who helped with a couple of previous videos as well,” said Sleepy Driver’s Peter Hicks. “It was actually filmed in my garage a couple weeks ago, mainly because I really like the vibe in there. We tried many angles to avoid the bikes and a lawn mower.”
Hicks said he decided to appear solo in this video as a way to reflect the song’s simplicity. It is a love song after all.
“The decision was very conscious to have it be just me and my guitar, even though the full band is on the recording,” he said. “The song is a love song from one person to another, so setting it up essentially as I wrote it – one guy with his guitar – seemed logical.
“We’ll get all the guys’ handsome mugs in the next one.”
