Common Deer Premieres ‘Glass (Redux)’ Video

Common Deer Release Video for 'Glass (Redux)'
Common Deer 'Glass (Redux)'

Toronto quintet Common Deer write about what they see. Their new music video for the powerful ‘Glass (Redux)’ serves as a rebel yell against taking what’s presented in this life of glossy social media as truth and encourages creating your own future by seizing the day. Directed and produced by Mariah Owen, shot and edited by Nina Djacic, the band is featured in a battle of the bands scene within the video. The original ‘Glass’ track and now the ‘Glass (Redux)’ have been a fan favorite in the band’s online arsenal, surpassing 150k streams on Spotify.

Lead singer Sheila Hart-Owens explains, ‘Glass’ is about the comparisons we make in our romantic partnerships to those we see around us. When we refuse to allow our own connections to progress naturally, the result is overwhelming pressure, dissatisfaction, and eventual relationship breakdown. We can’t help it – surrounded by the shiny, filtered, composed and (ultimately) superficial perfection of others’ lives, the grass always seems greener on the other side. But what about the grass under our own feet? It browns and rots away as we are slowly overwhelmed by everything we think we need, and slip further away from what we already have. Are we even capable of true satisfaction anymore?”

Common Deer are in the midst of their first ever full tour of the U.S. heading to SXSW this week for two performances on Friday, before hitting the West Coast, taking part in this year’s JUNOSfest in Vancouver, and heading back east. The tour continues to support Common Deer’s heralded 2017 debut EPs “I + II” which are now combined conveniently on one 12” vinyl record and your favorite streaming services.
