Following the recent release of their debut eponymous single, Dust in the Sunlight, aka singer-songwriters Billy Wright and Annie Rew Shaw have released a new video to go with it.
The track is this beautiful slice of sun baked, atmospheric pop that features the pairs lovely harmonies. Not too far distant from the likes of The XX, albeit not as obscured by the accompaniment, which in this case is soaring backing vocals, splashes of synths and piano, and These driving drums.
Of the video, the duo say “Last summer, we headed out to Berlin to collaborate with Alex Newton (@tallguypictures) on our debut music video. We also managed to get DOP Bobby Goulding and camera assistant Edmund Renew on board, completing a dream team of creative,” they explain. ”Rather than following a narrative for the video, we focused on creating different moods while we performed the song. Annie’s parts were based in very natural areas, while Billy’s were more urban. The contrast in locations and meditative dancing (something we never thought we’d do in a video!) created an otherworldly, purgatory-style effect – drawing on the themes of shift and change in the song”.
