Keywest Release Video For New Single ‘C’est La Vie’ From New Album ‘Ordinary Superhero’

Keywest have released the brand new video for their latest single ‘C’est La Vie’ which is out now alongside their eagerly anticipated Marshall Records debut album ‘Ordinary Superhero’. The album is now available to order with exclusive bundles through Transistor Music.

‘C’est La Vie’ is a track that sings about life’s difficulties. However, it goes on to talk about how life goes on and gets better. This powers through in the form of summer vibe with a bouncy acoustic guitar, a track that shows a great folk side to the band and their music.

The band’s debut album ‘The Message’ entered the top 20 in Ireland, second album ‘Joyland’ went to Number 1 in Ireland in 2015, third album ‘True North’ went to Number 3 in Ireland, and they had a string of radio hits such as ‘Carousel’, ‘This Is Heartbreak’, ‘This Summer’, ‘Something Beautiful’ and ‘Cold Hands’. The band have sold out shows across Ireland, including three Dublin sell out shows at The Olympia Theatre, The Academy and Whelan’s, all within 10 months.

In addition to sold out headline shows, the band has performed at festivals including British Summer Time, Country 2 Country and Country Music Week in London and Longitude and Electric Picnic festivals in Ireland. The band have recently completed a 13 date Irish, UK and European tour, which included a sold out 1,200 capacity O2 Academy Liverpool show.

Keywest are widely known for their explosive live performances. The four-piece Dublin based band comprises of Kav, Glover, Jimi and Harry. The band formed after being introduced during a trip to Los Angeles where they became friends. Starting out in Dublin, the band found the gig scene in Ireland very slow and began busking, taking their sound directly to the people of Ireland. Whilst honing their sound and style the band became famous and well known for busking on Shop Street in Galway and Grafton Street in Dublin.

Keywest’s Marshall Records debut ‘Ordinary Superhero’ is out now alongside their brand new single ‘C’est La Vie”, with an Irish, UK and European tour to follow.
