Elliott Brood’s new album “Ghost Gardens” came out on Friday and they’ve shared with us the video for the track 2 4 6 8 from it. Lead singer Mark Sasso told us: “The lyrics and idea of the song come from an incident I witnessed live on TV when I was still just in grade school… the station we were watching cut away to an accident where a car with a family inside had driven through some barriers and sunk to the bottom of the Detroit river. It cut from the regular programming to the scene at the exact same time that rescue crews were pulling out the soaking lifeless bodies of the children from the river. A horrible thing broadcast to families and children especially with no disclaimers or warnings. That image has never left me.”
