Weird Radicals “Human Being”
Rarely do I find a musical group that straight off the bat just grabs my attention, pulling my forward and not allowing me to let go. So is, Weird Radicals – the Phoenix rock band that brings images of 90’s alt rock and The Beatles to my head.
As soon as I heard “Human Being” I had a good idea of what I wanted to see visually. When I contacted my producer, Cameron he had a very similar aesthetic in mind also – it’s always amazing when creative visions link up.
Human Being is a very personal song. It’s a song of want, need and the human desire to be accepted, loved and nurtured- something I think we all can relate to. Andrew’s vocals really shine on this track and really push this primordial need to the forefront. As soon as I heard the song, I fell in love. It’s incredibly sincere dynamic, and almost haunting.
Before we even got on set, we were working. This shoot required painting the backdrops a specific color (that we traced with a hex code) to match the band. We shot a timelapse to chronicle this arduous but fun task – pictured here :
It’s been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post, and it stops right here. It’s been tough, after Dad’s death to get back into the swing of things and a lot of the reason is my own depression. As always, love from my wife and dogs, and music has helped me heal. Expect bigger and better things in the future.
