UK artist Sian Cross has released a video for her song “Tell Anybody.”
The stop-motion animated clip sees a lone female figure on a personal journey of self discovery, walking a road to freedom and release.
Directed by Andy Biddle, who has worked with the likes of Wes Anderson on Fantastic Mr.Fox and The Grand Budapest Hotel, the video provides a beautiful figurative context for Cross’ song that sees the singer and songwriter’s agile voice soar over a bedrock of contemporary drum and bass fuelled alt-pop.
Says Cross: “The video for ‘Tell Anybody’ is by a very good friend of mine Andy Biddle. He cleverly explores the burden of carrying around a secret. The idea that you are trying to deny who you are and pushing away a part of you. Running from it, however, consumes you. You can only be set free when you accept it and don’t hide it anymore. The message of the video is whatever your secret may be, just be proud of all that you are. Once you can accept yourself and love yourself so will others.”
