New Release & Video: Matt Corby – No Ordinary Life

Matt Corby has unveiled the official video for new track No Ordinary Life, the first single to be released from his upcoming second album, Rainbow Valley

The video is the first time Matt has taken us visually into his new world, showing us the hyper reality that happiness can bring to the ordinary…

The video was directed by Matt’s close friend and artist Ego, who is best known for his collage and projection work. The pair came up with the video’s lighting and projection concept to include isolated footage of Matt playing the individual instruments, which were then manipulated with colour and light, and projected into the garden of the Rainbow Valley property where the album was written and named

Having produced architectural mapped projections at Sydney’s Vivid Festival and exhibition works at Hobart’s MONA FOMA, Ego says of the video, “I wanted to create something that takes Matt into the ‘extra-ordinary’; almost beamed up and into an ether of light, colour and wonder. There is an intimate connection between him and every note that I wanted to show in one time and place”

Looking ahead to 2019, Matt has also announced he will be returning to the UK and Europe next January and February for a special ‘Rainbow Valley Tour’, with tickets on sale now – please see below…
