Vancouver's Mr. Merlot Channels the Bard in "Catch a Feeling" Video
Published Jun 14, 2019Vancouver's Robert Ondzik has just uncorked City Sex Volume 2, a brand new album from his vino-swilling alter-ego Mr. Merlot. To celebrate the album's tasty tasting notes and smooth mouthfeel, he's also shared a brand new music video for the song "Catch a Feeling."
The clip, which was directed by Kyle Bowman, classes things up a notch further by bringing in the Bard. Specifically, Ondzik and his backing band — which includes Jay Arner, Jessica Delisle, Adrienne LaBelle, Thomas Lougheed, Tom Whalen and Aaron Cumming — have adorned themselves in Shakespearean robes that they borrowed from the Bard on the Beach.
The highbrow outfits and eye-popping film grain set the perfect scene for Mr. Merlot's slow-burning anthem. Watch the video below, where you'll also find a stream of City Sex Volume 2.
The album will be celebrated further with a Vancouver release show at Far Out on June 29.
