"Belgrave Line" is the latest single from this three-piece Indie Rock outfit from the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne. The track has a very personal core, reflecting the area in which the guys have grown up in and also memories of their journeys travelling along this train line. It also focuses on the strong emotions and human complexities within us and between each other. Musically, this is a very laid-back track with long stretches of beautiful melodic instrumentation and catchy sing-a-long moments (Add a little space in this crowded room).
The music video filmed by Sam Van Munnen and Aidan Ginn incorporates elements of stop motion photography as we see lead vocalist Jye Batham walking/running along the platforms of Flinders Street Station and Belgrave Station, capturing life moment by moment. There is also footage of the band playing in front of the Nobelius Packing Shed in Emerald with a stunning bright blue and teal grey backdrop. Great work guys.
