PREMIERE: Little Earthquake offer up beauty and pain in ‘Human Connection’ video
The art form of the music video is one that can be lost in the constant onslaught of new music. In an era where everything is in hyperdrive, sometimes it can be hard to pause, reflect and create something ultimately really special. Artists have barely let their first single cool off before they’re onto the next one, and it’s a shame because when it’s done right, a music video can stick with you for days, weeks, months or even years.
One such act that has chosen to take time and consideration with their music video is LITTLE EARTHQUAKE, a duo from the Central Coast of NSW. Teaming up with Jefferton James for directing and Dimity Kennedy for shooting, Little Earthquake have executed the art form of the music video beautifully for their latest single, ‘Human Connection’ featuring Rosa Morgan.
Breathing the track to life, the clip for ‘Human Connection’ is a rich, detailed, visual representation of the song – soft and calm, yet powerful and captivating. Drawing inspiration from René Magritte’s ‘The Lovers’, James aimed to capture the track’s sentiment of frustrated desires and mystery, and has done so extremely well. Focussing on the story of
an intimate embrace that takes a surprising turn between two lovers, it’s transformed from an act of passion into one of isolation and exasperation.
However, it’s not all bad news, with the song itself offering up a positive resolution thanks to lyricist, Justin Hyland, finding solace in self-reflection. Ultimately, this clip further amplifies the raw vulnerability on offer in ‘Human Connection’, and highlights the fact that Little Earthquake are an act to watch. Let’s hope there’s plenty more where this came from!
