Groundbreaking lesbian country rock band Antigone Rising premiered their new video ‘Get To You’ this week.
New York-based Antigone Rising made the video with directors Valerie Lasser and Jie Yi while touring New England last March. The infectious “Get To You” features on the band’s recent EP Whiskey & Wine – Volume 1, which came out online on March 25th, 2014.
The “Get To You” video is has a strong theme of sisterly love and bonding that reflects the way all the band members feel about each other when they are on the road. The video offers a rare insight into the Antigone Rising you don’t see on-stage. All four members – Kristin Ellis-Henderson, Cathy Henderson, Nini Camps and Dena Tauriello – are very much like a family.
Since the 1990s Antigone Rising have gone from strength to stregth. After signing to Starbuck’s Hear Music (Lava Records) they moved over 150,000 copies of their debut album and toured with legends such as The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers Band, The Bangles and Aerosmith.
In 2013 Kristen Henderson was photographed kissing her wife on the front cover of a special issue of Time Magazine exploring same-sex marriage. The band have also worked in Israel and Palestine as US cultural ambassadors.
The band are currently touring the US in support of Whiskey & Wine – Volume 1 and plan to bring out yet another EP, Whiskey & Wine – Volume 2, on October 28th. Antigone Rising are a very fan-focused band, putting out a huge amount of content such as alternate mixes of their best-loved songs, music videos and all kinds of behind the scenes footage.
Thus Antigone Rising really mean it when they sing ‘Get To You’!
