Australian singer-songwriter Harrison Storm has shared the visual for his recently-released single ‘Sea And Fire’, taken from his upcoming EP Be Slow, due for release on 4th December.
Directed by Sydney based director Onil Kotian, the video captures a star-crossed lovers relationship. Focusing on the organic and genuine chemistry between two characters, the film is based on minimal shots and a loose script, through which the two actors Kaitlyn Boye and Ben Chapple move within each other’s worlds with intuitive improvisation.
Talking about the video Harrison says: “Seeing this music video come to life for a song that means so much to me was pretty magical. The way Onil captured the performances of our brilliant actors, bending and twisting their story together brought another dimension to the song I didn’t think was possible.”
Written and recorded in the UK & Australia, the EP is a 5-track offering of encouragement and clarity in love-loss told through tender, introspective lyricism paired with expansive, inspiring, and beautifully composed soundscapes. The EP includes title track ‘Be Slow’, as well as two previously released singles: ‘You & I’ – a haunting narrative of long-suffering love – and the indie-pop anthem ‘Breathe Again’.
Harrison worked with producers Nick Atkinson and Edd Holloway in their converted barn studio in the English countryside, before returning home to Australia to complete the EP with long-time collaborator and friend Hayden Calnin. “This collection of songs is something I’m really proud of. For me, it covers moments scattered over the past few years, moments that have been defining and pave the way for a new space I feel I’m moving into. There seems to have been a real cleansing emotionally through these songs and I’m starting to become really wide-eyed and excited for what lies ahead. I hope people can connect with these songs in a way I connected with myself writing them,” explains Harrison.
The EP shares a painful, yet sobering reflection of love and loss with emotional honesty and sharply observed lyrics that have come to define Harrison’s innate ability to paint a picture that instantly connects with the human soul.
