NEW BAND CRUSH & FEATURED VIDEO: WORLD WIDE “HOLLYWOOD”
If you don’t know World Wild, then the video for their new single HOLLYWOOD is going to make your head explode, between touring and electrifying the stage with the likes of Client Liaison and Luke Million .. World Wild have been busy making art happen.
World Wild teamed up with Aaron Shuppan, a film maker making waves around the world.
Singer, Jarrad Lee Jackson says: After watching Aarons reel I was blown away, it wasn’t like anything id seen lately, it was full of mystery and it took me to a dark place in which I felt safe and didn’t want to leave. I knew right away Aaron was going to have to make this video, the mans a genius.
The boys carted the whole production half a kilometre up a secret ridge to get that perfect view and as seen in the video WHAT A VIEW! The video is oozing with eighties influence, from an old broken down dirt bike to the blinders and smoke machines, there is a “Lost Boys” eeriness to a Ramones “Pet Cemetery” texture. It builds beautifully to a stadium ready ending sonically and visually makes you want to see World Wild’s explosive live performance.
Jackson: We were performing on a ridge over looking our city using generators, smoke machines, crazy lighting, we all worked together and made it happen, the rain held out and everything ran so smoothly. I took a moment to comprehend that it was even happening, there was an emotional static in the air in which I think we could all feel, you don’t get to feel that often and I will never forget it.
Hollywood is about two artists/lovers trying to make their dreams reality, the constant battles they push through and how easy it is to turn bad energy onto one another.
This indie synth driven piece of art is a hybrid of electronic loops and studio recordings inspired by true events, emotions and moments in time where the earth stood still.
Jackson: We aren’t here to enjoy success, we have no expectations of finding a pot of gold but only to live and breathe the adventure of putting in fruition our imagination, the battles we entail on each artistic burst is called life, we enjoy that.
