.C.’s Aidan Knight prepares for a string of spring tour dates that sees the quintet tackle Canada and the US before headlining in Europe. Tour dates commence March 16. Watch the delicate new video for “Margaret Downe” from their latest album, Small Reveal.

 

In advance of their upcoming North American and headlining European tour dates, Victoria, BC’s Aidan Knight release the video for “Margaret Downe”, from their latest album, Small Reveal.  Directed by Fort Langley, BC duo William Wilkinson and Oliver Brooks, the new video is a delicate and intimate portrayal of the song’s story. “I think their work is exciting, thought provoking, and visually impressive,” says Knight. “It’s a memorable portrait of heartbreak and loss.”

Wilkinson and Brooks say, “from the outset of the project it was clear to us that the heart of “Margaret Downe” is in Aidan’s detailed, narrative lyrics. Visually accompanying the song presented a challenge though: we were wary of creating imagery that would too literally convey the story… while on the other hand we felt it was important that the video still be thematically related to the song. Ultimately we settled on a structure that would allow us to explore Margaret Downe through a series of quiet vignettes, shadowing but not directly illustrating the story arc, letting the lyrics speak for themselves while revealing her world with careful cinematography and slow, deliberate pacing.”

 

The second studio album from Aidan Knight, Small Reveal, was recorded over ten days in ten different locations with producer Jonathan Anderson, capturing the tone and feel of each location.  The album presents themes of introspection, creativity, and escapism, resulting in a lushly arranged record that swirls around Knight’s voice.  The band returns to the road this spring for a tour that sees the quintet tackle Canada and the US before headlining in Europe.
