A few weeks ahead of her extensive national tour, Sydney avant-pop heroine Montaigne has delivered a spectacular video for new single, Clip My Wings.
Perfectly complementing the song’s grandeur, the video is set in an expansive desert and shows the striking pop starlet being dramatically thrust about by unseen energies.
“I had the very distinct idea of falling and flying in my head, not because of the ‘wings’ metaphor, but because I am obsessed with this video game called Kingdom Hearts – a game which formed much of my creative style.
Kingdom Hearts explores dreaming, memory and connections to others in a fantastical and surreal way with which I’ve always been enamoured,” says Montaigne.
Clip My Wings is about the value of standing up for what you believe in, even if you’re alone in your belief. The song is a bigger sound for Montaigne with its opulent and dramatic melody.
