Shot on 16mm film and digital by frequent collaborators The Sauce, Lonely Diamond – Live In Studio was recorded at Sydney’s Studios 301 and provides an intimate live setting for music-lovers to experience Ocean Alley’s latest album, immersing fans into their world with a look into the action and banter that goes on behind-the-scenes and during a live performance. With audio recorded by the band’s long-time producer Callum Howell, Ocean Alley’s renowned production and performance quality is at the forefront of the film – never losing the charming or dynamic essence for which they are so celebrated – reimagining how Lonely Diamond can be experienced in a new and socially-distanced way while providing the first opportunity for fans to connect with the album in a full band performance, despite the current pause on touring due to COVID-19. Adding a dimension of otherworldliness to the film, the album’s visual identity is integrated into the set’s design, using irregular shapes and contrasting gradients to lean into Lonely Diamond’s themes of exploration and escapism.
