Music + Entertainment | WATCH: “I Created” This Is What REAL LOVE Looks Like!


musicandentertainment_logoAbscondo is introducing the music video for their new single, “I Created”.  The new European-American band’s first video is refreshing because it is not about image.  While it is sexy and maybe even controversial, the video isn’t about sex either.  “We wanted to show real love and real emotions.  We asked real couples to undress and to express affection for each other the way they naturally do,” explains Mark Manney, the band’s American singer / songwriter.

“What inspires me as a songwriter is to create something meaningful.  Our first music video had to be just as meaningful as the song,” explains Mark.  “I believe that what matters most in life is what we create with the ones we love.  Even as we all struggle with our fears, our worries, our burdens, and our failures, love offers us the freedom and the chance to create something beautiful and so much more important than anything else.”

This is the opinion of an American who has spent the past several years living in central Europe.  “Slovakia is a romantic country ruled by love.  I left the United States to live in a place where people still walk hand-in-hand, kiss by a fountain, and sit in cafes to talk with friends about their relationships.  In Slovakia, love is everything.  This is what inspired the song “I Created”,” explains Mark.

“The band had been talking about doing our first video for some time, but it was my wife who finally came up with the right concept.  We wanted to feature a wide variety of people because every person is unique.  When two unique people get together, the universe they create between them is just as unique as they are,” Mark continues.

Mark’s wife, Eva, directed the video.  The couples featured in the video are friends and family of the band in Slovakia.  Eva Manney explains, “The couples featured in the video are real.  There are no actors.  We wanted something completely simple and pure, so that all we see are the feelings, the emotions, and the love between these people.  That’s why we asked them to undress.  We wanted to show pure love between a man and a woman, love between a mother and child, and we also feature a same-sex couple.  The concept is simple: pure love, stripped down.”

With an American singer /songwriter from Seattle, Abscondo is a European band with a modern sound and a fresh concept.  This band is doing something really different.  Abscondo is creating music that expresses meaningful ideas about love and life.
