Tremor Low comes from Oakland, California. They sound like synthesizers, drum machines, delay and distortion pedals in exactly that order. The band has a awesome sound that will appeal to any Depeche Mode fans. This latest video features cool a slow-motion clip, inspired by films such as “Pulp Fiction,” and “Time Crimes.” The video was shot by director David Dutton in one day while trespassing on private property.
Band member Don Bellenger describes “Give Blood” as “A look at confusion and misplaced blame, and, in the end,” he says, “the details of ‘who did what,’ or in this case ‘who killed who,’ become irrelevant. We are doomed to repeat our mistakes.”
Of the production itself, Bellenger says, “I tasted lots of fake blood and didn’t like it. In one particular shot, we threw a bloody knife and then couldn’t find it, so there’s still a very incriminating knife covered in blood out there on this person’s property.”
In addition to Bellenger, Tremor Low is comprised of Fabian Paredes, and Ariel Utz Wirnsberger, who was discovered by Bellenger and Paredes after auditioning two dozen prospective band members.
Coming up in the San Francisco scene, Tremor Low has since drawn the attention of respected Bay Area DJ Aaron Axelsen, who brought the band to the stage and greater exposure, as part of his popular local Popscene event. Performances at nationally recognized San Francisco venues such as Great American Music Hall and Bottom of The Hill have further cemented the band’s local reputation.
The video premiered recently on Esquire marking the band’s first national exposure.
