There's also an online gig to look forward to on July 30
Dermot Kennedy has unveiled the seriously eye-popping CGI-laden promo for his 'Giants' single.
“We started with the simplest expression, a spark to ignite the journey," director Oriol Pug says of the clip. "We then created a subject and we set it in constant motion, sometimes struggling through different situations, others stopping to enjoy moments of simple beauty, a metaphor for a constantly evolving life. Coronavirus has made people rethink their relationship to nature and how that affects our actions. It’s made us rethink and visualise the impact we have and how quickly nature is able to self-heal. This brings us to a new set of emotions and a new angle on what our priorities should be.”
Expanding on this, Dermot explains: “Nature has long been a recurring influence for my music and to celebrate and explore the scale and beauty of the natural world with this video felt instinctive. In this time of great uncertainty and as we are forced to acknowledge how fragile and complex life is, the journey this video takes is important figuratively and physically. Change is inevitable and necessary but also challenging. A new world and a new beginning underpin the message of the song and this video.”
The Irish star has also announced a Some Summer Night At The Natural History Museum gig on July 30, which you can be virtually at by logging on to https://shops.ticketmasterpartners.com/dermotkennedy
