OSCAR AND THE WOLF SHARES VIDEO FOR “RUNAWAY” Watch it here Infinity album out this Friday through Play It Again Sam/Neon Gold
Oscar and the Wolf has revealed the video for his latest single, “Runaway“, the second track to be taken from his new album Infinity, which is due for release this Friday September 29 via Play It Again Sam/Neon Gold.
The video was directed Antwerp-based fashion photographer Frederik Heyman, who is known for his use of vivid colours and surreal references; an ideal partnership for Oscar and the Wolf who was also commissioned by globally renowned designer Dries Van Noten to create the soundtrack to 2015’s spring/summer collection at his Paris Fashion Week show. Discussing the video, Heyman says: “Collaborating with Max on ‘Runaway’, I wanted to visualise the long sequence of a fall, stretched through time, undergoing different graphic stages of destruction, struggle and desire.”
Oscar And The Wolf aka Max Columbie created and wrote much of the album at home in Brussels after a year of intense-self exploration following the release and consequent touring and expectation of their debut album Entity in 2015.
The album’s content explores Columbie’s psyche from a personal perspective whilst taking influences from his love of film and TV. Produced by Belgian techno wizard One Track Brain, the idea behind the new track lifted from the album, as Columbie explains, “…is that everything that you desire can ultimately lead to your destruction. Initially bringing the light of affection and devotion, but settling into a sudden unquenchable craving, resulting to ultimate surrender in chaos. Conflict is what feeds life, so light and dark will always need each other, the unbalance however is a treacherous path.”
