Japanese Wallpaper – ‘Arrival’

Japanese Wallpaper returns with a clip for his emotive single Arrival, fresh from his self titled EP. A slow building and expansive song,  the lush visuals – courtesy of Melbourne’s Running Man Productions and Exit Films – sit comfortably over the music, director Thomas Pollard having fallen in love with the track at first listen.

“The track for me was all about a journey and while it’s incredibly beautiful there is something quite heavy behind it all,” he said of the song.

“The whole idea developed from a single line in a email Gab [Japanese Wallpaper] sent over describing the song as ‘contemplative and almost healing’. Those few words gave me the go ahead to explore a main theme of internal examination… The next problem was how the hell you’d visually show that. For me, it was to create a world where the edge of consciousness blurs, of lucid dreaming and setting up a narrative of renewal within that,”

Premiering this week on i-D, the clip coincides with the arrival of the Arrival 7″, how fitting! Featuring a remix from Orchid Tapes label head Foxes In Fiction on the b-side, the 7″ is available now in very limited quantity from Japanese Wallpaper’s bandcamp.
