I'm very excited to share the first taste of CAIRO's debut full length album! The above video was shot and directed by the extremely talented Czlowiek Kamera (also directed killer videos for "Call Me In The Afternoon" and "No More Losing The War" by Half Moon Run)
This is the first release and title track off CAIRO's "A History of Reasons" set to be released January 20th, 2015 through MapleMusic Recordings
The video has received some serious love and has been getting some pretty slick features/shares including The Juno Awards. Here's what people are saying!
"A video for the title track which is emotional and jarring in the way it showcases the earth’s expansive landscape. I am provoked to think about the reasons why history repeats itself – as if a narrow worldview is all our society can muster when there are a plethora of solutions available to us. The song is a breath of fresh air and CAIRO should definitely be on your must-hear list of Canadian bands." - A Music Blog, Yea?

"A History of Reasons" is a solemn, cinematic anthem with group-sung "ooh-na-na" refrains that give way to earnest crescendos of echoing guitar and impassioned crooning. The accompanying clip, directed by Czlowiek Kamera, captures the drama with lots of slow-motion shots of people walking through wide-open landscapes.
