I’m very excited to share the brand new music video for “Shadow (feat. Lyrics Born & White Hinterland)!” It premiered earlier this week over at Consequence of Sound. The video was written and directed by my extremely talented pal, Ryan O’Hara Theisen, and shot on location in Brooklyn in 2011.
Here are a few things Ryan had to say about his inspiration & concept:
Powerful tracks can breathe life into sleepy emotions and memories from the past. ‘Shadow’ found it’s way back to my darkroom days of college, where I worked as a photographer’s assistant. I printed hundreds of portrait images every week and, indirectly, started to create strange voyeuristic relationships with the images of people I was bringing to life…
The visual aesthetic grew out of the John Hedgecoe photo books I studied as a high school student. The photos from those books, especially the nudes, always had a late 70’s magic to them. With ‘Shadow,’ we brought a Hedgecoe nude shoot to life; lots of available light, natural textures, an earthy color palette and an innocent looking model. Outside of the studio, we continued our 1979 world with great vintage get ups and by using the gritty exterior of the DUMBO, Brooklyn waterfront as our background.
I posted a few stills from the video over on my Facebook page - you can check them out HERE.
And lastly, here’s the Soundcloud to stream/download “Shadow” and all of its accompanying remixes for freeeeeee!
