Announcing that their album Neither is, nor ever was via Shimmy-Disc is to be released on the 1st of October, folk-rock band Constant Follower continue to enchant us with endearing lyrics. The band has recieved acclaim from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Gideon Coe and BBC Scotland’s Vic Galloway in recent times, and we have no doubt their forthcoming song ‘The Merry Dancers on TV’ will get much-deserved attention. Singer-songwriter Stephen McAll explores time fleeting and the uncertainty of life. The band’s music also appreciates the little wonders that do occur no matter how bad things may seem in present times. We are thrilled to present the animated music video for ‘The Merry Dancers on TV’ and prepare to feel something and maybe shed a tear or two.
“Making art together is something that transcends any distance and that was definitely confirmed over the period of making this film. Being able to work with a local band while being trusted with such a stunning song made any physical distance feel obsolete. Constant Follower’s choice to work with new and emerging artists for their videos meant that I, as an artist, was able to create something unlike anything I’ve had the ability to before. This is my second foray into stop motion and I have learned so much from this project alone- skills that would have taken me years to learn in any other setting. The film, at its core; is about connection and how easy it is to lose it if we start taking things for granted in life. I liked the idea that even the moon herself could tire of being taken for granted and head off on a holiday only for one child to notice it missing and go on a voyage to let it know how much it is loved and respected.”– Fiona (Video Director)
