A highlight track from the ‘Flowerss’ EP, HalfNoise has shared the brand new video for ‘All That Love Is’ which initially premiered via Music Feeds. ‘Flowerss’ EP will be made available on vinyl via LAB Records in the UK later this year.
“It is a privilege for us to be involved in the HalfNoise project ” says Mark Orr of LAB. “Zac and the whole team at Congrats! are some of the most creative people we’ve ever worked with, and on the ‘Flowerss’ record they’re doing something sonically and visually unique. We are very proud to welcome them to the LAB family and release the EP on vinyl later this year.”
Shot on 16mm film in various locations in California, ‘All That Love Is’ was given the retro treatment by Video Director Sam Kristofski, known for his work with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, GUM and The Babe Rainbow. Commenting on the collaboration HalfNoise’s Zac Farro said: “I knew right away with this song that I wanted Sam to direct the video…He always has a such a creative and unique vibe and I knew would be fun to collaborate with him on this song. Really, I just let him loose and he shot it all in California on 16mm film. That’s the amazing thing about music videos and art in general — I would have never come up with this video concept, but now I can’t hear this song without thinking of this video.”
Never one to rest on his laurels, Zac Farro has had a prolific couple of years – releasing music as HalfNoise, recording with and rejoining Paramore, directing music videos, honing in on his love for all things film-photography, and co-running Congrats Records with fellow Nashvillians RH and JT. With theFlowerss EP, Zac has expanded HalfNoise into a full band comprised of his closest friends and collaborators, creating 7-tracks that weave between nostalgic fuzz and contemporary hooks. Lead single “Flowerss” and “All That Love Is” received global premieres here in Australia on Good Nights on triple j, with the former also receiving a spot add. The FADER calls “All That Love Is” a “swirling track about losing love and feeling some real up and downs” while NYLON, who premiered the title-track, implores you to “Wake up and catch this vibe.” The band’s highly creative output has also drawn glowing press from the likes of Noisey, Paper Magazine, Billboard, What Youth, and Lomography.
“It’s not only the music and songs that I’m really proud of, but the collaborative spirit on the project as a whole. HalfNoise has been my brainchild of sorts for a while but the way friends got involved on this EP was refreshing and inspiring for me. The way we approached making the EP, the vibe in the studio, the art, videos, and everything has been friends encouraging each other to step out and create something meaningful and fun. That’s really the core of what HALFNOISE is and what we are creating with our label, Congrats – friends having fun, encouraging each other, and making art through the process. Feels good to have these songs out, and really, we are just getting started…” – Zac Farro
The ‘Flowerss’ EP is coming soon on Vinyl via LAB Records.
