This Friday marks the release of Glen Hansard‘s new album ‘Between Two Shores‘ (Anti- 19th Jan). He’s revealed a new animated music video for the album opener ‘Roll on Slow‘ which was written when Hansard was living on Bleeker Street, NYC…drinking too much and missing his girlfriend who was away in Europe at the time.
The video was directed by Piotr Kabat: “The video attempts to bridge the gap between animation and film. While it’s entirely hand-drawn, the organic and grainy look is inspired by classical movies shot on film.” Kabat added, “In terms of story we wanted to convey the vibe of a solo night out in New York. Getting kicked out of bars and hanging out in front of liquor stores ‘til sunrise just to escape from your own demons.”
