Following on from the release of her stellar new single ‘Get To Know You’, Sydney-based songstress Sparrows has just revealed the accompanying music video and news that she will be launching the new cut live at Oxford Art Factory.
Shot in the picturesque NSW Blue Mountains and directed by Nick McKinlay, the clip stars Sparrows herself and a group of actors sporting hand-made animal masks. The ensemble prowl the streets with their instruments exploring the town, jamming and dancing along their journey.
Sparrows explains the motivation behind the clip –
“I found myself in a magical festival setting, letting loose with a bunch of partygoers decked out in crazy costumes. Whilst we were all strangers, we were having the time of our lives and I think the costumes certainly played a role in us being able to express ourselves freely. The video is a fun extension of this experience, whereby the masks and styling creates an other-wordly feel. It’s funny, all the people wearing the masks in the clip, were complete strangers to me but as the day went on I got to know them and they really are an interesting, talented bunch of people. I often find myself eavesdropping on strangers’ conversations and daydream about who they are. What was their last meal? Are they in love? When did they last cry? We are all strangers but could easily get to know each other if we wanted too, but we often don’t and I wish we would more.”
Since the track’s release, ‘Get To Know You’ has been embraced by tastemakers far and wide including support from triple j, FBi, 4ZZZ, SYN, worldwide blogs and Spotify via their New Music Friday and Indie Pop playlists.
To coincide with the release of the song and music video, Sparrows will play a free entry show at the Oxford Art Factory as part of their ninth birthday celebrations, which will also feature Skegss, Dorsal Fins, ADKOB and Good Boy.
