“Guilt Trip” is a song about regret and isolation – a cautionary tale about what happens when you let trivial things get between you and the people you care about, only realizing once it's too late to make amends. It’s about that feeling of not being able to say that certain something to a certain someone before it’s too late and then having that weigh heavily upon yourself thinking… “I could have done this differently.”
"While we were in Toronto for Canadian Music Week last spring, we met up with a buddy to watch some hockey and wound up at this amazing video production space called 276 Sterling Studio. The guys that ran it were really down to earth, and ended up offering to shoot something with us while we were in town. This lead to the performance part of the video – huge thanks to Jesse Boland and Andrew Harris for making this happen!
As a band, we decided the song warranted a story. We got some talented local actors, Connor Tait and Zach Rousseau, to help us bring it to life. Mike Morash from Cambiguous Productions helped bring this second phase to life and tie the whole story together. We only had a day to shoot in four locations, including a party scene that generously had beer donated by Lighthouse Brewing.
We shot the beginning scenes at our lead singer and guitarist Noah’s house, then progressed into downtown and Chinatown where we filmed the remainder of the video including a party scene in Fan Tan Alley.
For The Cause & The Cure, we enlisted the help of Jesse Gander from Rain City Recorders (Japandroids, White Lung, The Pack a.d.) to record, as well as Joao Carvalho (Alexisonfire, Arkells, Silverstein) on mastering duties."
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
