A sweet family story fuels the Austin band's new single and video.
Austin rock 'n' roll mainstays Moonlight Towers released their latest album, the very good Heartbeat Overdrive, in late 2014, and have made a timely return this summer with a brand spanking new video for the standout track "Come Back to Tara". Not only is the quirky title a great little hook, but it has a nice story behind it too.
“My sister was going through an awful divorce, was feeling betrayed and had been through the wringer," explains singer/guitarist James Stevens. "My old man was a Gone With the Wind fanatic, and he said that she just needed to ‘come back to Tara’, which is what he jokingly called our childhood home. I was looking for a chorus, so I ripped that off. My sister found happiness in the end. The video is meant to get across the feeling of being alone, down and out, and just dealing with the mundane parts of the aftermath of a breakup. A house that was once filled with happy times just feels like a place to receive bills, eat crappy meals, and feel like a cog in the wheel."
