I AM PR: @Aabaraki Premieres New Music Video For “Danceshee”!
Overwhelming Public Response to First Single, ‘Danceshee’, Sparks Rush Release of New Music Video
(New York, NY–April 24th, 2012)–In response to an overwhelming demand by fans, Aabaraki pushed the release date for their music video “Danceshee”, the debut single off their forthcoming album The Emancipation, from Tuesday, May 1st to Tuesday, April 24th. Aabaraki worked closely with music video director Brian Robinson of Hyer Ground to bring their video concept to life.
Aamir Lee Bermiss – Vocalist and keyboardist for Aabaraki shared: “ The concept was for us to do a spoof on the old television show “COPS” which was a kind of predecessor to a lot of reality TV. the twist being, Aabaraki plays undercover cops who are attempting to break a prostitution ring. The further twist being that the type of prostitution calls for male prostitutes rather horribly concealed in women’s clothing. the rest, is just what you see.”
The video also features Jason Spiller, Mike Vernazza, Sveta Bout, Veronica Cooper, Lorena Ospinadiaz, Ana Aréchiga, Caroline Navish and Lisa Ramey.
Aabaraki will be performing at the 92Y Tribeca Mainstage on Friday, May 4th, 2012. The Alt-Soul band will be performing songs off their upcoming album The Emancipation.
The four piece band Aabaraki describe their sound as alt-soul that not only pays homage to the founders of funk, but also modernizes the genre. Guitarist Brian Forbes is a co-owner of Brooklyn’s The Gallery Recording Studio, and has toured with hip-hop rock band The Nillaz, playing on Warped Tour 2005 and at Madison Square Garden. Akie Bermiss, a self- taught jazz keyboardist who has opened for George Clinton brings with him raw and sexy vocals that fall somewhere in between D’Angelo and Stevie Wonder. Aaron Steele, one of New York’s most sought after session drummers has toured Europe opening for Jamiroquai and bassist Ari Folman-Cohen comes from a jazz heavy background and has shared the stage with Avante legend Bobby Previte and opened for Patti Smith.The band recently released an extremely polished EP, completely written, produced, and cooked up from scratch by the four accomplished musicians.
