The Daydream Club’s Adam Pickering surprised his musical soul-mate Paula Walker by asking her to marry him during the video shoot for their new single Saltwater.
Adam explains…”I’d been thinking ahead to the future and while filming the video for Saltwater I realised that I would probably never have a more perfect opportunity to do it. Paula and I had our first official date at Formby Beach in Liverpool. It’s an absolutely beautiful place, so I suggested it to Paula as a shoot location (secretly thinking that it’s the ideal place to pop the question). I had the perfect musical backdrop, meaningful setting and even sparklers… After initial confusion from Paula, (she thought it was a strange scene that I hadn’t told her about), she eventually realised it was a genuine moment and thankfully said yes.”
The poignant video for Saltwater produced by WeTheConspirators provides an enduring record of the proposal moment. Saltwater is set for release on Monday 16th March, and is the first of three new singles with the plan to follow-up with a deluxe album release. Saltwater is their love song, Adam & Paula explain… “It’s about finding your soul-mate, the person you fit so perfectly with that you move together through life as one fluid entity.” “You are salt and I the water, and now we are the ocean, we move in fluid motion”
