Fitting words from media outlet on Scarlet Sails new single “Upside Down”. The band has been compared to Radiohead and Oasis for their unique blend of rock & pop, with uniquely catchy melodies. Scarlet Sails consist of Russian born singer-songwriter, Olya Viglione and Dresden Dolls drummer, Brian Viglione. Their chemistry was immediate with Brian bringing life to the songs
that Olya had been writing. It wasn’t long before the line up was rounded up, with guitarist Mark Kohut and bassist Kevin Jones joining to complete Scarlet Sails. “Upside Down” is a powerful anthem that will no doubt put this band on the map. Lead singer Olya Viglione spoke of the song saying, “Upside Down” is a song about facing life and its changes, letting go of the past. It talks about chances that you don’t consider that end up turning your life around when you least expect it. Karina Kandel, our director, expressed the meaning of the song in her concept for the video, through a peculiar relationship of the main heroine with her suitcase that symbolizes the past and the memories that she has a trouble letting go off. This was a lot of fun to shoot and act out with a retro look to match the mood, me and our whole team had a blast”.
