Brightness is a new project from Alex Knight, an Australian artist who today is sharing a new video, “Waltz.” The track is a warm and stripped down cut, and the visual, which Mclean Stephenson directed, is a fittingly intimate and minimal accompaniment.
“‘Waltz’ is a song of love and gratitude,” explains Knight. “My friend Alex (Crosby) and I experimented using an old Akai 1/4″ Reel to Reel for this song. The tape itself had just about had it and you can hear another song bleeding through from one of its other tracks. It’s made up of one uninterrupted take using a single microphone, along with a mellotron part for the choruses that I overdubbed later.”
