This week’s music video is spot on, right in the middle of the winter season and having the musical hits to keep our ears buzzing.
It’s not really snowing or looking anything at all like winter but Red Hot Chili Peppers’ music video for “Snow (Hey Oh)” is right on when it comes to tone and musicality. The well-loved rock band has been through its ups and downs and to its members; it’s an all too familiar topic.
Vocalist Anthony Keidis who have also struggled with bouts against drug addiction said that this track was about surviving and starting fresh. Hence the lines of the song “white as snow.” The music video entails the travels and people that the band gets to meet on their tours. It also serves as a tribute to them and the years that have pushed the band to where they are now. The soft melody of the song is amped up by former band member John Frusciante’s signature guitar riffs and Flea’s bass stops.
Give the song a listen and see what the song is really all about.
