On-the-rise rock quartet SAUL — brothers Blake Bedsaul (lead vocals) and Zach Bedsaul (lead guitar, backup vocals), William McIlravy (bass, backup vocals), and Myles Clayborne (drums) — have dropped the emotionally resonant video for the acoustic version of their acclaimed and incredibly personal hit single “Brother.”
Saul reached out to their fans, known as “Equals,” and asked them to share photos of loved ones that they have lost to be included in this video. The visual matches the intensely personal nature of the lyrics, which is a poignant lament on life and death. The track tells the story of the Bedsaul’s late older brother, who passed away from H1N1 in 2009. The song resonates now more than ever as the world deals with various traumas due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Iowa-based band is currently working on their upcoming Spinefarm Records full-length debut, due out later this year.
