Denver based singer-songwriter Cous released a new acoustic music video for her track “Hazy Daisies” today. The video comes as a follow up to the official music video with a fresh sound and visual take on the themes of the song.
“Hazy Daisies” is both an ode to and cry for Mother Nature. It is a reflection of the beauty this planet has to offer as well as a reminder of the delicacy of these ecosystems and the need for protection and preservation. When thinking about locations to shoot for the acoustic version, she knew she wanted it to visually ring true with those themes. She ventured up to Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, CO, where they shot on the stunning property surrounding the recording studio. Videographer Connor Flynn and producer Nick Vann (Nobide) joined forces to help make the vision and sound come to life.
For over 20 years this music festival has brought big names to Denver while also showcasing the local scene. This year over 170 artists will appear on 15 stages over 3 days. Last year the festival was a virtual 3 hour event. This year’s showcase includes Pinegrove, Remi Wolf, Shannon & The Clams, Sofia Valdes among its 13 headliners. Local acts include returning artists of Bellhoss, Slow Caves, Wildermiss, Izcalli and more. There are also new faces including Lnlygirl, The Grand Alliance, Deadluv and more.
“After 20 years of Underground Music Showcase, we were thrilled to be able to carry-on our tradition virtually last year by raising $75,000 for independent musicians” shares Casey Berry, owner of the festival. “With that said, we couldn’t be happier to be in-person for 2021 to not only support live music and local bands, but to support more than a dozen independent bars and restaurants on Broadway!”
UMS is working closely with city and state officials to make sure we rage safely in 2021. This might include reduced capacity (especially at indoor venues), and potentially limiting ticket sales to ensure proper distancing as required. UMS has every intent to become a good example of how to return to in-person, live music festivals in a safe and celebratory manner, and will be monitoring health directives in real time as the big weekend approaches.
