Game of Thrones fans will recognise a familiar face in Gardna‘s latest music video.
The narrative follows Gardna as he makes his way back home during the early hours of Sunday morning. On his way back, he strolls into a haunted medieval church, where he finds a dark spirit played by Maisie (Arya to fans of the show).
And while the video may be a coming together of two creative spirits, this isn’t the first time the pair have met. The Bristol-born MC went to school with Maisie. The Game Of Thrones actress loved the idea behind the video and was keen to get involved.
“She totally smashed the dark spirit role,” says Gardna. “The shoot was 12 hours long and the church was freezing cold. Sounds horrific, but we all genuinely had such a great day shooting the video.It was a pleasure to work with her on this project, she’d add ideas and was naturally sick at improvising and fitting into her role. ”
The MC also revealed exactly what his well-known co-star thought of the video; he said:
The track itself was made with the help of hotly tipped producer Kreed and is set for release on Bristol label Boom Sound. An exciting remix of the track is also on the way from Bandulu member Hi5Ghost, who has fused dub, bass and grime for together for the reworked version.
On the subject of how the track came about and its fast turnaround in the studio, Gardna said:
‘Sunday‘, directed by Chris Lucas, follows Gardna’s previous releases ‘See The Vibe‘ feat. Tiffani Juno. The track has notched up over 20,000 hits on YouTube, a No.1 spot in the Juno Reggae Chart and has sold over 1,000 vinyl records.
Hard work and originality have been key to Gardna’s success, and we’re immensely proud of his achievements so far.
Speaking about life at BIMM and how the Music Management course has benefited him, Luke said:
To celebrate the release, Gardna will play two launch parties at Bristol’s The Attic venue (May 28th). Joining him on the night will be fellow collaborators Kreed and Hi5Ghost.
And it’s already looking like a busy year; the MC will be embarking on a summer tour, with dates at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury and Shambala.
New music is also in the pipeline for the rising star. “I’ll also be releasing music; an EP with Kreed and other tunes with Mr. Benn, Mystic State, Jinx in Dub, Aries and more,” he said.
