Just before embarking on his East Coast tour, Sydney-based producer Billy Fox has revealed the accompanying music video for latest single ‘Avalanche’.
The visual was put together by Spanish-based animator / director, Alberto Hernández Mérida and took over two months to create using stop motion animation. The clip features two handmade cutout characters that endure a series of hardships together.
Fox explains the link between the song and clip –
“I initially pictured a couple climbing a mountain engulfed by an avalanche; which was a metaphorical representation of being overwhelmed. I gave Alberto a brief, however told him to take creative license. He returned with the two protagonists I had envisioned and developed it all into a narrative that complimented the music and message beautifully. It’s easy to feel defeated, but knowing someone is there to face challenges with you can be solace enough in itself.”
Since the songs release ‘Avalanche’ has received praise from all corners of the globe and locally, including support from the online tastemaker community, triple j, community radio and Spotify.Along his travels, Fox has previously supported the likes of Glass Animals, Boo Seeka, The Aston Shuffle, Tijuana Cartel and R.W. Grace.
The ‘Avalanche’ tour kicks off this weekend on Saturday August 13 at Moonshine Bar, Manly and continues on in Melbourne, Byron Bay and Sydney.
