Acclaimed director and producer Kris Moyes (Beck, Grizzly Bear, Franz Ferdinand, Sia, The Presets) takes you on a hypnotic visual journey in the animated video for Mosman Alder’s latest single, Germland (of Julien Charbonneau).
Inspired by the song’s title, Moyes modelled a series of 3D vignettes that celebrate the physical similarities between outer and inner space. Bacteria, body tissue and natural landscapes all form parts of Moyes’ mesmerising microscopic universe.
Kris Moyes said on making the video: “The imagery resembles shapes and colours commonly found in the natural world. Body tissue, bacteria, forests and space junk spring to mind during playback.”
Jackson Muir of Mosman Alder said on the video: “It was a new experience for us to let go of being involved in our art but it made sense to give Kris complete control. He had clear vision and we have a lot of respect for him as an artist and his previous work for
Kirin J Callinan, Grizzly Bear, Beck, Sia and others.”
Germland (of Julien Charbonneau) is the first single from Mosman Alder’s debut album, Humdrum Star. Due for release in September, Humdrum Star was recorded under the guidance of producer Paul Dempsey (Something for Kate) who describes the Australian six-piece as: “One of the best bands I’ve heard come out of Australia in a really long time”.
