Faith Healer’s “& Waiting” music video is a sweet slice of tour life

The Edmonton classic pop duo are heading on the road in support of the new album Try ;-).

January 18, 2018

Faith Healer is the Edmonton duo Jessica Jalbert and Renny Wilson, who displayed a wide and compelling spectrum of classic pop sounds on the new record Try ;-). "& Waiting" is the opening track from that LP, and it sounds like the band have channeled distorted memories of 70s rock radio with ease and personality. In the song's music video, premiering today on The FADER, Faith Healer catch the song's breezy and lonely vibe for a beach day.

Over email, Faith Healer shared the scene and story behind the video:

"The night before Pensacola we were in New Orleans and the show there was like a weird disaster. The band we were touring with didn’t even get to play their set, we didn’t make a dime, and nobody cared. So the next morning we were like Fuck it, let’s go to the beach and we left pretty early to get to Pensacola. We had no idea that the beach there is like the nicest beach in Florida and considering we’re Canadian and it was November we were loving it. So we filmed this music video on our iPhones on the beach and then played one of the funnest shows on the tour at this open air bar called The Handlebar, the aging owner was dancing like a maniac in front of the stage and puked right in front of me but he didn’t have to leave because he owned the place. Was pretty sick."
