Stand Up and Say No - "Can You Feel" (video) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

21 April 2014

Ottawa’s Stand Up and Say No is headed up by Andre Nault, the rare musician who manages to remain as devoted to making music as he is about raising his family.
 

Nault was pretty much headed out of the music scene after too many dates playing to small and unappreciative crowds. Then, his songwriting gift for a good hook and a catchy melody was discovered by a Los Angeles licensing company and he started getting jobs writing jingles. And he kept making his music too. Stand Up and Say No‘s new record is the Assuming Loyal EP releasing on May 6th.
  
About “Can You Feel”, Nault says the song “is about a guy who’s tired of climbing the greasy pole, who’s success came at great expense. He’s basically having some sort of breakdown. I always strive not to be that man; to be creative and not competitive. It doesn’t always workout. The video was shot in one evening with the help of my wife’s brothers and cousins. We made a party of it.”
