Video: Santa Cruz – Nothing Compares To You
Fast-rising Finnish rockers Santa Cruz have released a video for the song Nothing Compares To You from their latest album Screaming For Adrenaline.
“Nothing Compares To You is probably my favourite song to play live,” says Archie, Santa Cruz’s vocalist/guitarist. “It’s more laid back and you can almost sit back and enjoy the show, feeling the vibe.”
While Santa Cruz have their feet planted firmly in the golden era of devil-may-care 80s rock, they’re keen to emphasise their fresh-faced, youthful approach.
“I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing, seeing some of these older guys from the 80s still playing shows and touring,” Archie says in an intervew in the latest issue of AOR magazine. “I can see it in their eyes – some of them are tired and only in it for the money.
“We opened up for Cinderella in Helsinki and it was pretty sad. Most of the bands had an aura and were legendary back in the day. Then these old farts come in. You’re eating away at your own legend, glamour and image by doing these small club shows, doing stupid comeback tours.”
Some might say those are wise words from Archie. Alternatively, it might just be a case of: “Goodbye old farts – hello new farts.” Watch the video below and decide for yourself.
