Following on from a lush extended performance live clip that premiered exclusively via Music Feeds, Aussie buzz magnet Jack Grace has just unveiled a captivating new music video for his latest single, All Lost.
The second cut off the enigmatic Sydney songwriter/producer’s forthcoming debut EP Rivers is an intimate electro-laced piano ballad, and its cinematic visuals are equally as stark and poignant, featuring beautifully geometric clips of fencers dancing gracefully around each other.
Speaking about the video, Grace says it actually acts as an extension of the song, rather than simply a complement to it.
“All Lost makes me a bit uncomfortable,” he reveals.
“When it came to making a clip for the song I didn’t feel like there was more that needed to be said – I actually felt the opposite, I wanted to make a clip that expanded the song without pushing a particular angle. I’ m a fan of internal narrative and this is about helping you with that.
“I’m a big fan of (director) Hamish Mitchell,” he continues. “He does ‘bold’ with ‘feeling’ and that’ s what I try and do, so this is the space where the song and the clip intersect for me. Hamish breaks rules in the most beautiful way. All that being said, the whole thing came about from Hamish texting, ‘Just thinking… It’ d be sick to shoot some fencing @ 200 frames per second’.”
Grace will follow-up his critically lauded appearance at BIGSOUND earlier this year by releasing his debut EP, Rivers, on Friday 28th October.
