Liam Bryant & The Handsome Devils Release Animated Video for New Single “Conflict”
Following on from his previous artistic style music videos Liam Bryant returns with another imaginative video for his melancholic new single “Conflict” which you can watch for the first time above.
Directed by Liam himself, the video follows the journey of a tambourine and stomp box on an adventure exploring the world. Similar to the lyrical content of the single “Conflict”, the music video portrays Liam’s search for direction in life.
“Conflict” is the second single from The Pessimist & The Optimist. It was written in a time of melancholy for Liam and delves into themes of loneliness, not fitting in and feeling uncertain about one’s life and direction.
“I think it is important as a songwriter to be writing songs that not only have a special meaning to yourself, but can be interpreted numerous ways by different individuals. Relating and connecting to something someone else has written, sung or has said is what being a human is all about.” – Liam Bryant
Accompanied by film stars – acoustic foot stomp box, Stompy and foot tambourine, Tamby, Liam recorded his debut album The Pessimist & The Optimist at Airlock Studiosin Brisbane with Producer Yanto Browning (Art of Sleeping, Kate Miller-Heidke) and had the tracks mastered by ARIA winning William Bowden (Gotye). Liam also enlisted a very talented bunch of musicians The Handsome Devils to perform on the album. The band brought great power, dynamic and space to the songs, a sound that has now been replicated in the bands live shows.
“The Handsome Devils truly brought their own sound to the songs and from there our Progressive Folk Rock sound was born.” – Liam Bryant
