Patrick Watson is proud to share ‘Broken’, a brand new single and video. The track was recorded at studio PM in Montreal last month. “This is a song I just felt like sharing before the next record. Dedicated to the storms we went through.” – Patrick Watson
Of the video, recently shot in Montreal, director Pedro Pires says: “It was a real pleasure to work with Patrick to create this video. We started with simple intuitive ideas such as characters fleeing or running away in fast moving vehicles. I then proposed to use reflections and flares to fragment the light to reveal a more impressionist moody state of mind of these various “broken” characters, explain the director.”
Absolutely drifting away here listening to the magic of Patrick Watson‘s title track from his upcoming release of “Love Songs For Robots” (out May 12th via Secret City). Featuring a dreamscape of swirling synths and ethereal vocals, Watson calls the song “A meditation on the human connection in our mechanical impulses”. I call it a great way to get us excited about his new record.
“Blackwind” by Patrick Watson, off 2012’s Adventures In Your Own Backyard (Domino Records). The video was born out of a video-making competition run by creative group Genaro in partnership with the band. Filmmaker Chloe Poirier-Sauve‘s beautifully well-crafted and fantastical entry was selected as the official video. Patrick Watson says, “It struck us as more than a music video: it stands on its own as a work of art.”
