Guitar-slinging newcomer David Myhre chases fatal attraction in the video for his debut single, putting a face to the romantic obsession of his steamy “Disguise.”
Premiering on Sounds Like Nashville today (March 5), the clip finds this Alaska-born talent and former lead guitarist for Tanya Tucker succumbing to the pull of a hopeless-but-still-hot romantic flame. Full of desire as he teeters on the brink of desperation, smoky vocals, sleek guitars and a tempting snap track add color to vocals about knowing his love is wrong — but not caring one bit. Meanwhile, those colors splash onto the screen in Myhre’s majestic, desert-vibes video.
“‘Disguise’ is wanting to believe something I know will never work, but maybe for a moment it’s ok to pretend it could,” the singer/songwriter explains. “I tend to visualize my songs as a movie while I write them. I hope you can get a feel for that in the video. My buddy Preston Leatherman who’s a great director/videographer in Nashville flew out to California and shot the video. We found a rad 1955 airstream in the desert near Joshua Tree [National Park] and shot part of it there and in Palm Springs. We wanted to capture the dark visuals in the verses and open up to more of the landscape when the chorus drops.”
“Let’s just, put on our best disguise / Baby, don’t give it to me straight, just lie / I won’t see you, and you won’t see me, too / Let’s just lay here, ’til we’re ready to say goodbye,” goes the irresistible chorus.
Along with his time at Tucker’s side, Myhre has also performed with Garth Brooks, The Band Perry, Ricky Skaggs and Don Felder, formerly of The Eagles, and his “Disguise” debut is out now. Find out more at his official website.
