Colorado-based string band The Sweet Lillies released a new studio album last month entitled Common Ground via Americana Vibes. JamBase is pleased to premiere the music video for Common Ground track “Blood On My Hands.”

The Sweet Lillies consists of guitarist Dustin Rohleder, bassist Julie Gussaroff and violaist Becca Bisque. Formed in November of 2013, the band has shared the stage with the likes of The Infamous Stringdusters, Kyle Hollingsworth and Bridget Law. Common Ground, the trio’s third studio album, was recorded in Denver and produced by Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth.

“Blood on my hands is all about honest reckoning with oneself. It is a song about the feeling of guilt and how it can propel you into an altered state of mind and way of life,” Rohleder explained. “The video is a beautiful black and white presentation of the band and song, with very little symbolism pertaining to the lyrics themselves. The hope is that this vague approach we decided on can help the audience find their own meaning in the piece.”

“[Director] Eric Abramson and his team were brilliant in the execution of this music video,” Dustin added. “Their passion for the project shined through during each moment of the shoot.”
