The song is about Barry travelling around New Zealand in autumn with his young daughter, and how she would brighten up the lives of everybody who crossed their paths. I tried to capture the NZ landscape and the colours of autumn and create a 'feeling' with a simple narrative - Jody Lloyd
'I really wanted to challenge myself to develop a new slow, meditative and thoughtful music video style - like something that no one else is doing. In this world, everything is so fast-paced and everyone tries to grab attention by being flashy and slick. I want to create the opposite, like the viewer is turning through an art book, or staring out the window of a moving train. It’s In those kinds of moments I come up with new ideas or get inspired to create for the sake of creating. I want to encourage everyone into that space - humans are creative beings. The world is a better place when we inspire each other to think and create, and just go WOW, that’s possible.’
Jody Lloyd is a New Zealand musician who started out his long musical journey in the rap group Dark Tower. He now makes music under the name Trillion.
