A visual masterpiece, Stefano Zeni is releasing the new music video for his track “Orange Clouds On The Horizon”, and we’ve got the exclusive premiere. The visual showcases the artist himself playing in beautiful places, surrounded at times by gorgeous landscapes, intricate architecture, and street art. The song plays off of the idea that a hectic day can be made more relaxing when the sun begins to set and that light marks closing in on a new day and a new chance at everything, and the tempo changes and patterns in the track mirror those feelings. “Orange Clouds On The Horizon” does its due diligence in presenting the instrumentals in the way they seem to have been written to be presented. After all, what better than to pair a gorgeous soundscape with matching features in the world?
Alternative indie rock music project The March Divide – from brainchild Jared Putnam – has a million tour dates ahead of him, but that didn’t stop him from releasing the brand new animated music video for the single “To All My Friends”. The song itself feels like a feel-good 90s indie pop track-meets-alt-rock/pop track from the oughts, and the visuals are brilliant and eye opening, to say the least. Explains Jared of the work:
I reached out to director and animator, Harold Loeffler-Bell, to do some videos for songs from my new album ‘Anticipation Pops.’ Harry really has a way of communicating the songs, in a simple and completely accurate way. Being shielded, while everything is falling down around you, perfectly explains the attitude and emotion of the trilogy of animated videos he created for the songs ‘I Don’t Care,’‘Overexposure,’ and now, ‘To All My Friends.’ Sometimes we need some help from our friends, to make it through.
We are lucky enough to be hosting the exclusive premiere of the video, so get your peepers on the work below!
