Last week, Nashville-based rock-brothers Jim and Jack Ivins released a music video for their ‘gothic’ love song “Roam the World.”
“With (The Code Duello)’s release looming, when the time came to do a video, we knew that, while we consider ‘Roam’ to be the oddball of the record, the dark vibe of the music just immediately lent itself so well to a visual that it wasn’t even a choice as to whether we would do one for this song,” said Jim Ivins. “… lyrically, it’s actually a sweet (but gothic) love song, we felt the video’s storyline needed to mirror that contradiction…”
The video follows a young couple that have a tumultuous relationship, chronicling their experiences: Everything from being cute and cuddling in bed, to breaking into an airplane hangar.
According to Jim, the song “comes from a very real place and it came very quickly.” When the song was created, Jim had just spent a weekend with a girl that he was involved with off and on for over a year, and he couldn’t help but feel that it would be the last time he saw her.
