Video of the Moment #2095: Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve

By on Sunday, 22nd May 2016 at 10:00 am

Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve, comprising electronic artists Erol Alkan and Richard Norris, have just released the video for their latest track. ‘Creation’ is the second single from their new album ‘The Soft Bounce’ and features the vocal talents of Jane Weaver and Hannah Peel. Its accompanying video was created by director Kieran Evans and choreographer Alexandra Green. Evans explains the video as follows:

The track has a great twisted psych/calypso feel to it topped off with wonderful vocals from Jane Weaver, and I immediately started thinking about some kind of weird dream dance sequences that could fit the rhythm and tempo of the song. Drawing on strange music and dance numbers that appeared in a few French New Wave films from the 60s and the photography of Arthur Tress, we came up with the idea of seeing characters in an unusual space moving in a peculiar way whether it be a reversed movement or choreographed gesture.

If you’re as inspired by Jane Weaver’s magical vocals as Evans was, you can read our previous coverage of her right back here. ‘The Soft Bounce’, the new album from Beyond the Wizard’s Sleeve, is due for release on the 1st of July via Phantasy.
