Spellbinding indie-folk artist Ryan Downey releases the striking video for his new song ‘Running’, the title track to his debut album due April 13. Like a time-lapse flower, ‘Running’ reveals itself over the course of three gorgeous minutes. Watch below!
Ryan and director Alex Badham took the video’s character into a half internal void, half real world space, drawing from the sensual aesthetics of Italian cinema to compliment the songs mix of grandeur and restraint; culminating in a truly stunning video.
Ryan Downey’s debut album Running is a glorious and meticulously constructed 21st century folk gem. Not a note detracts from his rich baritone as he sings a song cycle of humour and pathos; self-analysis, sex, love and modern life. Produced by Steve Hassett and recorded in both New York and Melbourne, Running is available for pre-order here.
Quietly gathering an audience after performing at Falls Festival, St Kilda Festival and MONA and opening for acts including Julia Jacklin, Luluc and Slow Dancer. Ryan Downey has announced some intimate shows in Melbourne and Sydney, further info below.
