David Arn’s new music video takes place in upscale Upper Manhattan and fans are never in doubt what he is trying to say. “Three Wise Monkeys” is tongue-in-cheek. When the search for love comes up empty, the doors of reprisal must open wider.
The brilliant video by William Murray showcases the talents of experienced actors who
bring the tale to life in spectacular form. Carly Erin O’Neil is resplendent as the self-obsessed ex-lover we all love to hate. Only David Swift could convincingly play her jilted lover who, after being ghosted, calculates a path to retribution. George Katt is the limo driver with talents not on his resume. Working with such fine actors, Director William Murray fools you into believing this is not a four- minute music video but a prelude to a much larger work.
The song was mastered at Abbey Road Studios by Alex Wharton (McCartney,Radiohead, Pixies) and features the impeccable violin work of Joni Fuller.

We sometimes don’t know where David’s music is going but the meaning behind his recent video release seems to contrast images women confront in advertising with their everyday life.

The song, “Someday the Record Might Show”, was filmed in Montreal by acclaimed cinematographer, Shaun Ryan Savard, of Playmaker Studios. It features Callayna and Jessie Doucet who is dealing with challenges when confronted by hyper inflated images of super models (like Callayna).
