Following the release of the single last week, emerging Bristol/Sydney based indie pop-rock band Dande and The Lion have followed up with the official video for “Children of the Hour”. Filmed in Chippendale, Sydney, the visuals offer an electrifying accompaniment that depict the highs and lows of an unpredictable relationship, alongside a darker subplot. Director Kathy Luu said of the video:
“I wanted to capture the essence, movements and feelings of love and the passion of being alive — of being children of the hour. We are all main characters in our life movie: wading in so much magic, it sometimes takes loss or time passing for us to realise the beauty and joy we were living. All we can do is be brave, do our best and try and have as much fun as possible while we still can — who knows how and when this movie will end!”
Dande and The Lion are dual vocalists Natassa Zoe (guitar) and Abbey Gardner (synth), joined by Chris Gabriel(drums) and Nicholas Shea (bass). The Australian/UK indie pop-rock quartet have released an impressive string of singles to date including their most recent release “Harder to Breathe”, which gained national airplay in Australia and was featured by BBC Introducing in the UK.
Having amassed over 100,000 streams on Spotify and 200,000+ views on YouTube, previous releases “Cheap Choice” and “Higher Places” have also received high rotation on MTV. Earning a reputation for their artistic videos, “Cheap Choice” won Best Music Video at the London Film Awards, “Higher Places” gained a nomination for Best Music Video at Cannes Film Awards, and most recently “Harder to Breathe” (directed by the band’s own Natassa Zoe) was selected for the London Director Awards.
