Leif Vollebekk's "All Night Sedans" Video Premieres @ KCRW

North American Tour Begins April 13

Today Montreal singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leif Vollebekk unveiled his music video for "All Night Sedans" via KCRW. The song is from 'Twin Solitude,' Leif's just-released LP out on Secret City Records. It has been met with raves, sold out shows, radio play across the country including KCRW, WFUV and WXPN, appearances on Spotify's New Music Friday playlist in twelve countries, and more.

The song came about when Leif was in Florida and saw a car on the highway with the words "All Night Sedans" printed on it. Leif and the video's director went to Miami and rented a room for a night to capture the warm glow of neon lights at dusk. They improvised as Leif assumed the role of an Uber driver, cruising around Miami to pick up friends of friends and strangers in bars, and bribing their way into a carwash to film. The video is warm and intimate, seeks to capture how passengers and drivers can be close and yet worlds apart. It was directed by Kaveh Nabatian.

PRAISE FOR 'TWIN SOLITUDE':

"Devastatingly beautiful" - NPR Music

"An invitation to travel to the darkest corners of your heart." - World Cafe

"Passionate Broken Social Scene-adjacent melodies wrapped in a casual, jammy atmosphere." - The Fader

"Exudes a meditative joy." - Village Voice

"Lovely, soulful and spare" - Brooklyn Vegan

Vollebekk wrote the ten-song 'Twin Solitude' while re-calibrating from a creatively taxing period on the road, a time where his own songs just didn't feel right to him. He began to find beauty in the everyday vignettes that made up his life at home and on the road: finding inspiration in a bike ride, a Moog synthesizer, an untuned guitar, a Nick Drake record.

Leif has been touring Europe and wraps up his tour there next week. His extensive North American tour begins 4/13 in Quebec City and includes Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston.
