So much about Kate Tucker reminds me of Audrey Hepburn’s character, Ann, in the classic film Roman Holiday.
If you’ve seen the movie, you know Ann is an anxious crown princess touring Europe. Kate Tucker isn’t royalty, but she has a nomadic spirit that moved her from her home in Akron to Seattle, where she harnessed her inner recording artist and learned to speak French. The singer moved to Paris, which plays a prominent role in the official video for “Looking Around.”
“Looking Around” is the first single from The Shape The Color The Feel, an incredibly ambitious collaborative film and music venture from Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden. Jason Smythe, owner of Silver Point Studios, is one of ten filmmakers involved in the project, making his directorial debut here.
Smythe’s camera evokes the song’s meaning as it sweeps across gorgeous sets that showcase Kate, the band, and the city where they found each other: Nashville. If Kate Tucker is Princess Ann, the Sons of Sweden are her Joe, the one with whom she shares her dreams and finds her footing.
The Shape The Color The Feel will be released on February 11, 2014. Keep an eye out for the next track from KT+SOS as it debuts on the Nashville Indie Spotlight compilation coming in December.
