Quinton Brock Shares Animated Lyric Video for “To the Moon”
The Brooklyn rocker’s genre-bending new single gets treated by animator Durnis Markov.
Earlier this week, Quinton Brock’s “To the Moon” crash landed on our planet, proving the best possible synthesis of the somewhat-cursed “Wavves meets Anderson .Paak” RIYL it arrived with. The song transforms the sun-soaked garage rock of the former artist with the sweater-weather “oohs” of the best baroque-pop indie jams, with Brock’s not-entirely-un-.Paakian falsettos reaching a climax on the choruses.
With the official video also out in the world, today Brock is sharing a lyric video for the single featuring animation from artist and friend Durnis Markov. “Quinton showed me his new album a couple months ago,” Durnis shares. “’To the moon’ was one of the tracks I always kept putting on. With the animation, I was trying to create a contemplative space where he was feeling his past, while looking up to the stars and what’s to come. The lyrics were written in his handwriting along with some doodles he drew up.”
Still lifes of Quinton get turned into surreal cartoons laid over photos, while the song’s lyrics get scribbled across the frame. Watch the vid below, and add the song to your playlist here.
