Summer might be just around the corner but not for Hamish Anderson – the Melburnian singer-songwriter has just dropped his sophomore single, the acoustic gem Winter, and we’ve got the exclusive first look at the video.
The James Base-directed Winter is a raw, stripped back live performance. It’s got the distinct feel of being at a mate’s house, watching an intimate gig. Turns out that’s because it’s exactly how it was shot, with Anderson explaining:
“We decided to really strip things back and try and do a very raw video that was a one-take performance of the song in front of a group of friends at one of their houses in Melbourne. I wanted the video to be live so it would have an authentic feel to it and capture the real emotions of the song.”
Anderson has also announced a few live dates, with the 22-year-old playing shows in Melbourne and Sydney later this month. His debut self-titled EP is out now, featuring first single Howl and appearances from members of Foo Fighters, The Wallflowers and Angus & Julia Stone, with Winter available on iTunes from Friday, 6th December.
