MARK HAZE shines bright with his new music video ‘STAR’

The music video to Mark Haze’s third alternative pop single makes its debut this week.

Mark sets the tone a shade darker in his latest music video offering with ‘STAR’  which is now officially live on YouTube. The video is set in a monotone, noir theme that emphasises the scenes of perfect light that also come into play throughout the video. This theme seems to hint at Mark’s own contrasting sides as an artist that allow him to pursue his various styles of music. It’s something that has resonated throughout Mark’s series of single release so far in 2017.

The music video was produced, directed and filmed by Marnus Tredoux with post production by Amelia Cohen and Tiaan Barnard on camera and lighting. The crew delivered a stunning visual offering for Mark’s latest single.

Watch the music video for ‘STAR’ here:

‘STAR’ was written by Mark and his brother, Gareth Haze and produced by Nathan Woodman, who has also been Mark’s right hand man in steering his new incredible sound. The future is shining brightly for Mark and his band who have been received with an overwhelming positive response from fans and the industry.

‘STAR’ is available from iTunes here:

‘STAR’ is a super catchy dance track with a deeper meaning that surfaces in the lyrics. It’s about finding one’s own voice, sound and identity in a world where many people try to discourage that. The song is about going on in life and reaching for your dreams regardless of what other people say and not to be distracted by others’ biased opinions. As with all things in striving for a better life, the lyrics focus on our ability to be fueled more by the obstacles and challenges presented on our journey to success and do our own thing no matter what.

Lyrics: STAR by Mark Haze

Sing it, mean it, sell their lies and believe it
Twist it, break it, but don’t you ever fake
Breathe it, taste it, do anything just to make it
Feel it, steal it, sing those words like you mean it

Coast to coast, watch me mingle
Hear them play my single

They say, ‘boy you’ll never… boy you’ll never be a star. No cool cars, no pop charts, this rock n roll won’t get you far. It’s over, let go!’
Now they play my song on the radio

Use it, abuse it, the time ain’t right to refuse it
Touch it, see it, do anything to achieve it

Now you never felt so right, while you’re doing something wrong
As you step into the light, feels so good, it’s been so long
They told me write a jingle, they’ll never play my single, they told me write a jingle!

They say, “boy, you’ll never… boy, you’ll never be a star. No cool cars, no pop charts.  This rock n roll won’t get you far.  It’s over, let go!”
Now they play my song on the radio
Sing it, mean it, sell their lies and believe it
Twist it, break it, but don’t you ever fake it!

Boy, you’ll never… boy, you’ll never be a star

Name is Austin, peeps call me Austinrock. I like to interact with bands. You DO NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained here \m/{*¿*}\m/ ...THERE...OK. I'm a huge Melodeath metal fan. I'm proud to be a METALHEAD. Metal isn't for everybody, it's for the chosen few. Most friends I have tell me they don't understand why I like metal, that it is too much noise. They just going to have to listen beyond the noise and the truth is they don't have to figure it out, it is either in you or it isn't. Metal is my morning coffee and it's my night sleeping pills...
