PREMIERE: David Vertesi’s “Loud Talker” video is a smoked out, strobe-lit afterparty

The Hey Ocean! singer/songwriter's new video is the late-night magic hour when only your friends are left.

- Apr 13, 2016

David Vertesi is a Vancouver based multi-instrumentalist, and 1/3 of Canadian indie/alt-rock outfit Hey Ocean! Today, we're premiering the new video for his song "Loud Talker," an easy going piece of summertime indie rock.

The video, directed by Cayne McKenzie of We Are The City, and shot at Zach Gray of The Zolas' house in Vancouver, is a smoked-out jam session filmed through one of the house's windows. The late night setting gives off a "party after the party" vibe — that magic hour when everyone's gone, things have settled down, your friends are 30 minutes deep into a drunken slumber. What better time to bust out the guitars and drum set?

Vertesi and his band perform in a small room, equipped with a smoke machine and plenty of colourful lights. Maybe there was a bit too much smoke, though. In an email to Chart Attack, Vertesi writes:

"Our stuff was so caked in oil from the smoke machine by the end that I could barely hold my guitar without my hands slipping. Our drummer had to spend hours wiping down each piece of his kit.”
