Montreal singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk has unveiled the video for his current single, ‘Elegy’. The track is the first to be taken from Leif’s forthcoming album ‘Twin Solitude’ which is out February 24 via Secret City Records. On Spotify, ‘Elegy’ recently climbed into the top 15 on the UK Viral chart and is now fast approaching half a million streams.
Directed by Kaveh Nabatian, the ‘Elegy’ video was filmed in a Florida beach town that Leif frequented as a child. During filming, he danced in the dunes through sunset, followed by Nabatian with a camera strapped to him and a speaker attached so they could hear the song. The pair danced up and down the dunes all day, until it got dark and they were kicked off the beach.
Vollebekk has announced a tour supporting Colorado folk artist Gregory Alan Isakov in March and April. The UK dates of the tour will take in Brighton, Bristol, Glasgow, Manchester, and will culminate with a show at the Islington Assembly Hall in London on April 3rd. Full listings as follows.
