New Release & Video: Meadowlark – Postcards

Meadowlark have shared the emotional new video for their current single Postcards

As with all of Meadowlarks’ videos, ‘Postcards’ was directed by the band’s guitarist Dan Broadley. In keeping with the concept of the song itself, which is a message to an ex-lover, Meadowlark called upon their fans to contribute to the creation of this video and asked them to send in postcards with messages to those who have impacted their life in a significant way, good or bad

Overwhelmed with the reaction to their call out and armed with a collection of personal and emotional messages, Dan then set to work, selecting the postcards that resonated best with the concept of the song and built the resulting video around these messages. The project as a whole has acted as a cathartic experience for both Meadowlark and their fans alike.

Speaking about the creation of the video, Dan shared, “Postcards has such an honest and raw quality about it, both in the songwriting and the production,” says Dan. “I wanted the video to have these same qualities. Involving our fans has always been something I’ve wanted to do and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. We ended up receiving over 100 postcards, and each one was so beautifully written and so heartbreakingly honest. In the end we had to pick the final ones at random as we had too many favourites. I’m really proud of this piece”
