’Honey Bunny – the Rock ’n Roll Transformation’ is an analogical cartoon music video. It builds up from hundreds of hand painted mixed technique pictures to combine into a movie. The man behind the art is a Finnish graphic artist named Jyrki Heikkinen. The story was created by Tornado Bearstone and Jyrki Heikkinen assisted along with Gentle Savage’s guitarist Tim O’Shore.
Rock ’n Roll Transformation takes you on a journey to the underworld. The main character, ’Mr. Bunny’, tumbles down a mysterious hole in the ground ending up in the Underworld. Whilst he is falling, he transforms from a regular rabbit into a two legged walking human-like Rock ’n Roller. Feeling a little dizzy in the head, Mr. Bunny starts his journey in the underworld. He ends up hanging with the bad ass ’Lady Bunny’ who teaches him some moves ’n manners. In the end Mr. Bunny has a big decision to make….
Lead vocalist Tornado says: “Since I was a kid I’ve always loved comic books. First it was Tarzan, Lucky Luke, Tin Tin and Asterix. Later I found Conan and the Marvel characters, with a variety from ’high end’ comic books to more splatter-like stories. Comic book art is a beautiful, yet underappreciated form of art. Computers have taken the place of a brush, paper and hand painting, but it’s good to remember that Spiderman and his buddies weren’t born in the movies. First there were comic books”.
Gentle Savage’s debut album, ‘Midnight Waylay’ will be unleashed in February 2021. It’s a way of describing an ambush at midnight, or going to a rock show; you never know what’s going to happen out there.
Midnight Waylay depicts a ‘taking it easy in the daytime, turning into a beast at night’ kind of lifestyle. Just like a hunter strikes from the shadows, ruthless and silent, these songs can without warning rock your world.
As a concept the album Midnight Waylay is best appreciated when served whole, but each song has its own character and works well independently. Find your own adventure, let yourself loose!”
“It is all about the songs. And their internal message. That’s the basic philosophy behind Gentle Savage.”
