Presenting The Nudge - Dark Arts (Official Music Video)
Premiered by RNZ Music.
Many, many thanks to the wonderful Nudge - it was such a fun, hassle-free video that allowed us to share our love of Great Barrier Island with you, as well as it's icy winter waters...
We spent two days on Great Barrier Island with The Nudge filming their new music video for their track 'Dark Arts'. We went from wetsuits in the ocean to crouching around a roaring fire with golden rune stones - it was a wild and fantastical visual ride.
Sophi got some scuba gear on and filmed the lads in a tranquil and deep rock pool, while Mark opted for a winter dip sans wetsuit! We filmed across Medlands Beach + were once again amazed by the beauty of the island. We were outrageously lucky with the weather and made the very most of it. Massive thanks to The Nudge for such a great shoot - this was outrageous fun + The Nudge were stoic despite the winter cold.
What a blast. The Nudge sure know how to bring pace + vibe to a music video set.
We have been lucky enough to be able to test-drive the impressive new green screen at Massey University (WGTN) and we will be heading off to Great Barrier Island to film The Nudge in some scuba-åction glory later in the month.
This video has introduced a lot of new material, new experiences + new gear into the Peach fold - we've been filming with a legitimate + massive green screen for the first time, working with The Nudge on our first conceptual music video collaboration, and shooting with some ridiculously good new gear. We've brought the Nikon D750, the Sigma Fisheye + Sigma Art Series 35mm 1.4 into the mix! We're pretty excited about the visuals + abstract videography we'll be playing with.
Massive thanks to Massey, NZOnAir + these fantastic lads.
Auckland boutique festival "Music At Matua" presented THE NUDGE, ESTÈRE + FLY MY PRETTIES, in one delicious line up. The weather was scorching and the crowd delighted in the wine, the food selection on offer, and the superb summer sounds. We were there to film The Nudge as they kicked off the festival with their uniquely entrancing multi-genre music, followed by the glorious 'electric blue witch-hop' beats from Estère. We encountered people hearing her work for the first time who were instantly mesmerised. Finally, the much anticipated the big band lineup of Fly My Pretties, which included many friends - the Nudge boys Ryan Prebble, James Coyle + Iraia Whakamoe, Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle), Barnaby Weir (The Black Seeds), Mike Fabulous (Lord Echo/TBS), Nigel Patterson (The Black Seeds) and Jarney Murphy (also The Black Seeds). We were very pleased to briefly meet Age Pryor - we've been fans for some time. A really fun day - we certainly got our dancing shoes on.
