This week Nadia Tan and I unveiled our new music video creation for artist Dan Griffin via Exclaim. The themes in both the song BORDERTOWN and the eponymous EP are inspired by Dan’s recent move to Windsor, Ontario, and they prompted us to shoot the state of flux of the Windsor-Detroit area.
As said by Dan himself in the write-up in Exclaim:
“We wanted to capture real moments of young people living in these cities and finding meaning in their surroundings and in each other. ‘Bordertown’ is about the relationship between a state of mind and where we live. It’s about the way borders and cities help shape the way we identify ourselves… ultimately it’s about redefining yourself on your own terms and finding meaningful connections in the people and places around you.”
Extra special thanks to Robin, Lucas, Joel, Nick, Hill and Dinger for featuring their talents in the video, and especially to our friend Dave Todon for showing us around all the best spots in Windsor and Detroit and whose ongoing photography series of the area has been a longstanding source of inspiration.
