Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

Those Wicked Hours: the name is homage to the crazy, intense and memorable moments in life. We founded the band in 2009 and later started working with Toby (originally a rock bassist) and Simon (originally a Jazz drummer).

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

We like to call it New Vintage Electro. We like to use vintage Drum Machine Sounds and 70s and 80s synths. The clip to the song “Run” is a playable jump and run style game and a music video at the same time. It plays in Miami in the 80s. Its goal is to get the band to the stage while collecting as many coins and golden girls as possible and while hitting aggressive bouncers or avoiding crazy groupies.

Tell us about the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Ups: Definitely our new video/game, being played on national radio, but most importantly developing a strong passion for music as brothers.

Downs: Having a bad mix on stage and barely hearing yourself can be quite a challenge.

Tell us about music video director; how the music video was shot.

The director’s name is Marco Von Moos. He is the winner of a Zurich Film Festival award. He is a film maker as well as a game programmer. We shot the sequences of the video in front of a green screen and placed them into the game (check our Instagram account for “making of” pictures).
