Vincent Sinex is the vision behind the project The Late Innings, and this time around, the music video for single ‘Long Way From Home’.
“This song takes place on a spacecraft, somewhere in the near future. The desolate interstellar setting is reflected in the cold and remote Arctic landscape seen in the music video. I wanted to avoid typical images of space, so I assembled the video using footage from a documentary about the building of Camp Century, a cold war-era military base constructed in the 1960’s. I was especially drawn to the fact that the inhabitants of the base were not only far from home, but also reliant on each other for survival in harsh environment, much like the crew members of the spacecraft in the song.”
The Los Angeles based artist brings a mix of sounds from this and that future that may or may not exist. But it does. For you. And for your absolute ambitions that turn you up for waking up every day. The 70’s and the 80’s shine with new-wave pop aesthetics that just drizzles off of the unique vocal expressions Vincent decided to utilize.
“I have been recording since my early 20’s when I first got a four-track cassette recorder, a couple of guitars and a drum machine,” Sinex says. “I was inspired by the performances in the 1982 concert film ‘Urgh! A Music War,’ which captured the energy, intensity, and diverse sounds of 80’s new wave bands. When I saw groups like XTC, Magazine, and Echo and The Bunnymen in that film, it made me want to pick up a guitar and try to make that kind of music myself.”
His newest album ‘Wild Places’ are ready for you listen.
As Vincent says: “It contains ten tales of mischievous behavior set to music inspired by 80’s New Wave and 70’s AM radio pop.”
