Bria share new single & video, “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore”

With their debut EP Cuntry Covers Vol. 1 due digitally September 24th via Sub Pop and on the heels of Bria‘s previously released covers of Karen Dalton’s “Green Rocky Road” and Waylon Jennings hit, “Dreaming My Dreams With You,” comes a new video for their interpretation of The Walker Brothers‘ song “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore.”

Directed by Andrew Matthews, the video was shot at a friend’s farmland in the country. “We were all struck by the dilapidated beauty of the property and decided to create a series of tableaus, hoping to capture the spirit of the place and our time there,” shares Matthew’s. “The decaying, sun-baked farm seemed a good companion to the song.”

Frontwoman Bria Salmena shares about the cover: “Deciding to record “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore” happened on a kind of whim. Duncan and I are both big Scott Walker fans and knew we wanted to cover something from his catalog. “Sun…” was the first one of his we tried. Drawn to the melancholic nuances of The Walker Brothers’ vocal delivery, I really wanted to see if I could try and emulate that from my own experiences. The root of this cover for us is the drum machine pattern. Once we stumbled upon that, the guts of it came together surprisingly quick and we ran with it.
