California singer-songwriter Jeff Caudill, who shot to prominence with world-touring pop-punk band Gameface in the early 1990s, embarked on an acoustic, earthier, singer/songwriter journey in the early 2000’s. With a steady stream of solo releases and a Gameface reunion under his musical belt, the ever-progressing and adventurous Caudill wrote a decidedly Americana six-song concept EP called Reset The Sun, his first non-autobiographical group of songs.
“‘Around We Go’ is definitely a high point on Reset The Sun,” Caudill explains of the EP’s fifth track. “It’s a moment of reflection and realization after a long time of running from blame and mistakes of the past. Structurally, it’s different from most songs – most of mine at least,” he continues. “Instead of doing the traditional verse, chorus, verse… it goes verse, verse, bridge, bridge, chorus forever.”
The song embodies the road-worn alt-country vibe of Reset The Sun; “Now my busted rear view mirror is useless/I try to justify the reasons I do this – living on nostalgia for what might have been,” he sings, his weariness rimmed with hopeful optimism. The video for “Around We Go” features our hero on the road, appropriately enough, playing a character he knows best—himself. “I love how the video turned out. We shot it in Houston last month with Upstart Film,” he says. “These guys are super talented and fun and and they nailed the vibe of the song. I pretty much just played myself and everything just fell into place,” he adds. “It says everything I wanted it to say.”
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents “Around We Go,” the new video from Jeff Caudill:
