Los Angeles hard rock trio Owl, which features Hollywood Vampires, Ace Frehley band and former Cult bassist Chris Wyse (vocals, bass), Eric Bradley (guitar, vocals) and Dan Dinsmore (drums), have released a riveting new video for their latest single “Believe.” Owl’s single “Believe” dropped in mid-June. The band describes the track and video as tapping into a “very personal and explorative topic.” Wyse has a long-standing interest in musical exploration and enjoys creating wonder and investigation with his compositions.
The captivating “Believe” video features trippy videography of the Owl performing in the woods along with creepy, haunting imagery of ghosts, ghouls and specters. Owl describes the video as “a touchpoint of the band’s history” in addition to “delivering unique sequences visually to open minds to the realm of the impossible.”
The band emphasized taking a no limitations approach when it came to the creation of the song and sought out a recording process that would highlight the live element. They accomplished this goal by camping out at Overit Studios, which is located in upstate New York and pushing confines of how an upright bass and bow can be incorporated into the modern music. Their innovative approach demonstrates their mastery of reinvention. The trio states by focusing on the song’s essence they were able to “encompass what a person believes and taking control of destiny.”
Chris Wyse and Dan Dinsmore first formed their band together as teenagers in New York. The “Believe” single is the first new track in over ten years that includes the original guitarist Eric Bradley. Wyse first met Bradley when the two played together in Jerry Cantrell’s band.
