Shot over two days, our second colab with Tori Forsyth and Universal Music finds us in a hedge maze and desert dunes. Exploring the previous character creation(Betty Sue) and her subsequent demise through "the looking glass" elements, we delve into the idea of dimensional intersections which represents the underlining message within the song itself.

Artist Tori on the song “‘In The Morning’ was a last minute addition to the record so it’s funny that it’s risen to the top as a second single,” says Tori. “The song has a few different meanings to me, it was a written in a darker time of my life and there’s definitely that theme to the song, but I think it’s also a song that basically rides on gender equality, the idea that a woman can do everything a man can.”

Brad on the concept behind "In The Morning" - "In the morning reflects identity and the idea of self. Set between the sand dunes and a maze, the story drifts into the two worlds with one common thread, exploration. With the TV providing the link between the two. Personalities and I guess, the soul, drifts like frequency looking to transmit through a source, the body or in the case. The TV allowing a look into the many way we see one another."

If I Were The Hunter - Set Circles

For our latest release we had full creative licence to roll with whatever came to our head(which is always welcomed). Given the stylistic nature of the track we wanted to do something a little different. We decided to collaborate with another artist - Nigel Edwards of dance collective Lost is Found. Based off of Nigel's interpretation of the music we would shoot and edit alongside what he created as sort of an amalgamation of ideas forming one piece.

Working with a minimal crew and plenty of time to play with compositions is always a welcome change. Director Richard Clifford had this to say about producing the piece "When I first heard the track, the visuals were instant. I remember seeing Nigel perform at a show I was shooting and knew that his unique tutting style of dance would be a perfect match. I got in contact with Nigel and played him the track, basically begging him to get on board. I asked if he could interpret the music and create movements based on that. Then I’d film based around those movements. The results are a very immersive. Editor Tim Blackburn did an amazing job taking those two elements and creating the electrifying end results.

Jamie Page aka Set Circles had this to say about the video “The music video is almost a whole seperate piece of art that I’m just stoked to have my music behind really. I sent him(Richard) the song with the hope that it might spark something in his mind and fortunately for me, he seemed to dig it. I’ve always been a massive admirer of dance of all styles so when he came to me with a pitch involving Nigel, I was hugely excited. What you see in the clip is talent.. Im sure it was hard to get right, but the guys at Spliting Films managed to get it so right. I’m just so stoked to be a part of it.”

“Jess is an old friend of mine so it was a no brainer asking her to sing on the track – and we had so many laughs recording it too! The song is basically about reaching the breaking point in a bad relationship or situation” - Steve Tyssen spoke of singer Jess Lean's inclusion in this track.

“The clip offers a notion that relationships sometimes manifest the individuals into playing a certain characters, keeping a certain idea of each other over time. A materialized society has forced an insecure hand over people, where our identity is categorized into a box or stereotype. In world under constant surveillance and judgment, the characters in the clip are a heightened version of themselves, a creation by fear and expectation.

The collaboration was an open canvas from the beginning with Steve Tyssen, who’s positive energy open mind allowed for creative ideas to be voiced. Our producer, Grace Julia banded together a small team of creatives and sourced an old abandoned warehouse in Brisbane as a location. Corey Donaldson provided the unique visuals and Jess Moxon searched far and wide around Brisbane sourcing props. The clip provided a subtle message to stop and smell the flowers every once and a while.” -Writer and director Bradley Murnane.
