I think we said all we could say about Oliver Wilde’s magnificent new EP, Long Hold Star An Infinite Abduction, in our recent review – suffice to say that both it, and he, remains one of the great enigmas of the UK scene; a song-writer of exhilarating craft who makes some of the most dynamic and engaging pop songs you’re likely to hear.
That rather fanatical introduction aside, we’re very pleased to share the brand new video for ‘Fade’ today, a track lifted from said release, and it’s every bit as inventive and beguiling as you might expect. A stunning stop-motion creation – courtesy of th Cardiff-based, award-winning, director Lauren Orme – the new video makes for a truly special counterpart to the fog-drenched, deeply atmospheric mood of the track.
A very special audio-visual combination, we highly recommend spending a lot of time with it. Check it out below.
