Track: Iron & Wine – Anyone’s Game

Kim Black

Iron & Wine has shared his third single from its forthcoming album ‘Light Verse’, entitled ‘Anyone’s Game’, along with an accompanying stop-motion-styled animated visual directed by Callum Scott-Dyson.

The video’s playful nature has an almost Monty Python intro style; Scott-Dyson in explaining his process for the video says:

“I used card cutouts in terms of the stop motion style, hand drawing the elements before cutting out and animating them. I wanted the video to explore themes of evolution, the cyclical nature of life, falling in love and break ups, as well as life sometimes feeling like a game of chance.”

A collision of styles with syncopated guitar and fleeing strings eventually coalesce on the chorus. It feels fresh and alive with energy, a talent renewed hinting of a new productive chapter for Sam Beam.
