Michael Nau has shared a video for his debut single, ‘Love Survive’.
The new track, which is released tomorrow Friday August 26, features backing-vocals from Michael’s wife and bandmate Whitney McGraw. It is taken from the Appalachian singer-songwriter’s debut album Mowing, which will be released on Friday November 18 via Full Time Hobby.
On the animated created by Robert Wallace, he said: "’Love Survive’ is a light-hearted summery track, filled with personality and quirks.
“The video captures this mood, jumping between animated loops that move in time with the music.
“Set on a fictional island, the video explores the different aspects of nature there.
“Instead of a story-based narrative, the video expresses the feeling of the song, its rhythms and moods.
“To capture the organic sound, all of the animations were kept loose.
“The process used a mixture of real and digital brushes as well as hand painted texture loops to give the whole thing a handcrafted aesthetic."
