We have released a new song with a video that follows us through our month long Russian / European tour in May of 2013. The song is titled “KGB Are Still Looking For Me” and was inspired by another person who was in Russia during May that was a suspected spy and had the same last name as singer Chris. So the video and song play up this theme mixed with images of the trip throughout Ukraine, Russia and Italy.
This song was written in the van on our long drives through Russia after we had seen some news of an American with the same last name as me being arrested as a suspected spy. It was big news at the time and we were also binge watching the show “24” so it was all spy stuff all the time! We wanted to do a special song for a Moscow radio show so the KGB song came together and we played it on acoustic guitars on the air for the first time. The video plays up the spy theme and is mixed with some tour photos from Ukraine, Russia and Italy.
The song was recorded, mixed and mastered by Luca Spigato at Hate Studio in Rosà, Italy. All video production by Ryan McNurney at Electra Productions and some photos used by Luca’s Bar (Italy), Jane Evdokimova (Ukraine) and Serina Menin (Italy).
The Gamits are also playing a headlining show in Denver at Marquis Theater on Saturday, August 24th, 2013 and maybe they’ll just be playing this new song! Check out full details HERE.
