New Music Video… Premiering Today!

Music Video

We’re very proud today to launch Carleton’s first cinematic music video,  Blood is Thicker Than Water.  The video, directed by Scott Simpson of Playmaker Films, was shot in a number of locations in Inverness County, Cape Breton in early October.  The ramblings of a brother and sister through a rural landscape lit by brilliant sunshine and steeped in rich colours belie a darker, more sinister plotline.
