A Saturday Night somewhere elsewhere...‏ / @thewoodensky

The view is of a dark, windowless bar. Stale beer and cigarette smoke set the scene. Two strangers sit together as the women mumbles in Russian and broken English. Cinematic and bleak, it is a stark contrast to the anthemic tone of The Wooden Sky's song "Saturday Night" which is heard here and there, rattling through the shitty speakers. The woman, briefly inspired in her dismal environment by the song, asks the bartender to turn it up. No one moves. She does it herself. This is a glimpse of life, somewhere else.  
For director Scott Cudmore (F&#%ed Up, METZ) he approached "Saturday Night" as short film rather than a traditional music video. "was interested in how a person reacts to a song and that is kind of what the video is about on one level...Music videos are usually a kind of visual interpretation of the song and if I had done that here, then this video would probably have a similar anthemic, forward momentum in the images, but I wanted to go against that and just let the characters interpret the song rather than the editing and the images. I wanted to approach the lyrics directly with this video. I didn't want it to tell anybody how to feel about these people, I just wanted them to exist and let the song fill in the blanks."

Singer Gavin Gardiner describes working with Scott saying, "He has a way of finding beauty and love in unique situations and this video is a great example of that. It may be them against the world but at least they have each other, maybe that's all you need." 

The Wooden Sky are currently on tour across Canada in support of their fourth album, Let's be ready. which was released on September 2, 2014 on the band's new label Chelsea Records.
