Toronto’s own singer-songwriter Matthew Barber is about to release his new album, Phase Of The Moon on May 4, 2018, via Outside Music. In advance of the release, he has shared a video for his first single, “Back To You”. The video was directed by multi-award winner and 2018 Juno nominee, Christopher Mills. When asked about the video, Christopher Mills states,
“Back To You” is a song about strong, commitment to LOVE during a time of isolation. The video isolates MATTHEW BARBER in a cold, crisp landscape surrounded by churning waters, and rivers that lead outwards from a bleak suburban landscape. We used drones to create a churning, perpetually moving portrait of MATTHEW, and find the song’s emotional power in the beauty of moving water, which, at the song’s extended conclusion, appears to be choreographed with the powerful and uplifting orchestration of this heavy duty tune. This was a fairly simple, and straightforward approach to try to capture MATTHEW’S feelings, and place them into familiar landscapes, as our images breathe, jitter, and swoop around him, as he makes his way BACK TO YOU.
Phase Of The Moon will be available on LP, CD and all digital platforms May 4th, 2018. Pre-order HERE!
