Dan Brodie has made a foray into directing his own video clip for ‘When We Turn To Dust’, one of the many highlights from his new album Funerária Do Vale.
Joined by Chris Brodie on guitar and the mysterious Danielle Golding on vocals, the video was shot in one night at Body Electric Dance Studios in Collingwood, Melbourne by Antony Visser. With a touch of Twin Peaks and a hint of The King of Comedy in it’s simple yet stagey design, “When we turn to dust” captures the intimacy of performance; of the illusive space between reality and dreams.
We’ve reviewed the album in the latest issue of Rhythms magazine and we’ll have it up on PTW soon – but in the meantime we said of this song:
“Opener ‘When We Turn To Dust’ sets the scene for a number of songs that explore the theme of loss and its echoing ramifications. It’s a beautiful track with a late-night bar and Bad Seeds piano vibe. It’s Brodie at his most reflective and in terms of his songwriting, right at the top of his game.”
