George FitzGerald - Crystallise (feat. Lawrence Hart) [Official Video]
Direction & Design: Joe Mortimer Production: Studio Joe Animation: Chris Whalley Toby Mortimer
ManMakeMusic label boss George FitzGerald is releasing his own debut album Fading Love this spring. We’ve previously heard the minimalistic melancholy of “Full Circle,” and today he’s dropped another new track “Crystallise” featuring Lawrence Hart. Technically a video, the visuals that accompany the track were created by Joe Mortimer, who previously worked on videos for Peaking Lights. FitzGerald said this is what piqued his interest in working with Mortimer:
I loved the work Joe Mortimer did on Peaking Lights’ Cosmic Logic last year. With “Crystallise” being quite an ethereal and mysterious track, I thought a similarly abstract, hand-drawn approach would fit perfectly with the track.
He’s right. The track is cold, calm, and aloof, addressing a love that’s settled into its own tight geometric pattern. -- Stereogum
