Charly Coombes New Single and 'Anti Video' OUT NOW!!
August 22, 2017
'Fool' is the second single to be released from Charly Coombes new album 'RUN'.
Here Charly explains the thinking behind the video:
"In a world dominated by social media, internet saturation and fast moving walls and feeds, a serious pressure is on bands, musicians and artists: The necessity to produce fresh, original and relevant ideas for music video and art.. and usually on a tiny budget.
There is an expression within video-making: "Sometimes the best ideas are the most simple."
With the video for my new single 'FOOL', I wanted to take this concept to the extreme, by creating an 'Anti-Video'. In this case, the best content would be a total absence of content.
"Insert Music Video Here" was a concept I came up with to demonstrate those challenges of the art and music world - remaining creative in a full speed society that can be guilty of a short attention span and often an even shorter memory.
The song 'FOOL' deals with the feelings of fragility and rejection that we all have, and so I simply sat quietly and thought about the lyrics for the duration of the track. The end result is very personal and pushes simplicity to a new level. We are all fools for our art sometimes."
