The new music video for “Canvas” from the Vancouver-based alternative rock band Derrival is both quirky and loads of fun — and lets us know whom we can count on in case of a man-monster attack.
Directed by Sean Depner and shot by Manuel J. Ibanez (two more local talents), the video features a role-reversal Godzilla storyline with Manzilla set on destroying a city that ultimately gets saved by the band, decked out in their fanciest superhero spandex. The playfulness of the creative cut, which serves as a tribute to the band’s love of Power Rangers growing up, pairs well with the song’s infectious melody and lighthearted vibe.
“Canvas” is another release off Derrival’s upcoming EP, Departure & Arrival. Set to drop on August 21, the album also features “Original Script,” the track that led to the band taking second place at the 2014 BC PEAK Performance Project. The five-piece will be hitting the road on a Western Canadian tour in support of Departure & Arrival, beginning in Kelowna on August 29. They will perform a hometown release show in Vancouver on September 25.
