Half Noise, the side project of Paramore drummer Zac Farro, have released a video for the title track of the brand new EP Flowerss, due out on 4th May. The director of the video, Alex Kranzusch discussed the variety of styles used to bring the song to life:
“I really vibed with this song walking around Brooklyn in the winter. There is so much texture in this track, it made me think of the depth of light and color that differs spring and winter. That texture has an intangible quality that I feel is represented in Zac’s music. I experimented with different mediums that I felt reflected the spontaneous energy felt letting ‘Flowerss’ fill my brain for the past month or so. I used both watercolor and pastels to animate some of the layers that paired with the guitar leads, and digital brushes to animate more of the chugging guitars and heavier drums. I was inspired by late 70s, American animators like Suzan Pitt.”
The HalfNoise project came together after Zac’s departure from Paramore, but he has continued to release music and tour despite his reuniting with his bandmates in Paramore.
Flowerss EP, the follow up to last years Velvet Face EP, is released on May 4th
