That was a special night, and Secret Colours were a big part of it. It's always encouraging to see genuine people doing what they love, and they put on a great show.
This is the first video for Secret Colours' forthcoming effort, EP3. The video for "Faust" was directed and edited by Elijah Alvarado:
