‘Higher Mentions’ is the latest single from a rising Australian singer/songwriter/producer who goes by the name Driftwood., which also comes with a beautifully captivating self-filmed & directed music video.
Over his last few releases, Driftwood. has been creating an overall aesthetic feel to his project where the music and visual components are designed to work together as one unique artistic piece.
“Every song I have created also has its own video with a narrative that walks a line between reality and other ethereal dimensions. I don’t believe in describing narratives and storylines but instead prefer the viewers to use their own abstract intelligence to digest and interpret them for their selves.” – Driftwood.
With a skill-set that includes singing, song writing, music production, music engineering, film direction and film editing, Driftwood. has a lead role in every part of the creative process, and certainly likes to remain modest about it too. Inadvertently he continues to build his own name as a reputable music producer, film artist, and a multi-disciplined story-teller.
“I generally fly under the radar and don’t like to make a fuss about the fact that I do have a hand in every part of my creative process. I like to paint pictures through music and film, but I don’t like to star in any of my videos and prefer to collaborate with people who inspire me. I am fascinated by literature, music, film and life, and I strive to tell stories across audio & film to provoke thought and emotion.” – Driftwood.
‘Higher Mentions’ is available everywhere now via Mammal Sounds Records.
