Che-Val, fresh off the release of their debut album Waterproof, has now let loose on the world a lyric video for the title track. This video, designed by Aidan Gerety, syncs the sleekly modern ballad to the iconic Gene Kelly dance scene from Singin’ in the Rain.
Building on the pop music power couple’s signature mixture of old school and new school “Waterproof” fuses synth bass with elements of a live orchestra. In the same way this video breathes new life into an undeniable film staple, allowing Gene Kelly’s dance moves to fall together harmoniously with the music and giving new meaning to each. This video also draws inspiration from the cult classic Dark Side of the Rainbow idea, in which the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon is said sync up with another beloved film, The Wizard of Oz.
Che-Val is a husband and wife indie pop duo made up of Kenny and Laura Cash whose very first single, “My Beat”, climbed all the way to #52 on the Mediabase "Top 40" Activator chart. The couple takes retro styles and brings them into the future with cutting edge production. They are always looking for new ways to combine audio with visuals, as is the case with this video along with the Alice In Wonderland cosplay-inspired video for “Gone Mad”, which premiered exclusively on Vents Magazine last Halloween.
Laura teaches science by day, but writes and belts out emotive vocal hooks by night. Her background in pop and country is blended with Kenny’s ear for hip-hop, funk, and soul in a collaborative songwriting process. As an owner of Factory Underground Studio, multi-instrumentalist, and Berklee College of Music graduate Kenny self-produces and engineers all of their work ensuring all of their creative vision reaches its full potential.
