Enigmatic Brisbane musician and producer Andy Ward deals in electronic experimentation, drawing inspiration from the genre’s greats while infusing it with his futuristic point of view to create something entirely new. ‘Drinks&Money’ is Ward’s synth-driven debut and we’re stoked to be premiering the visuals today for the sonically lush and intricate track.
The video, made in collaboration with filmmaking duo of Toby Meadows and Adam Webb, delicately plays out the track’s themes of the loss and pain associated with substance abuse as it slowly destroys the world it consumes. “I think what they do is magic,” says Ward of working with Meadows and Webb.
Shot in an abandoned series of buildings in Brisbane using a combination of phone apps, X-Box Kinect and 3D rendering, the video tells the hopeless love story of an ultimately destructive relationship. “Craving what we don’t have can destroy us,” explains Ward.
Originally trained as a classical violinist, Ward describes his songs as “rolling electronic ballads” and music is just one facet of his art, with an immersive multi-media live show expecting to be coming soon.
