Music video by Montaigne performing Clip My Wings. (C) 2015 Montaigne under exclusive license to the Wonderlick Recording Company / Sony Music Entertainment Australia Pty Ltd.

A few weeks out from kicking off her extensive national tour, Sydney avant-pop heroine, Montaigne has delivered a fittingly spectacular video for new single, Clip My Wings.

Directed by Guy Franklin and John Gavin, the video was filmed by Edward Goldner and produced by Haley Polacik and Saskia Vaneveld at Pixel Melbourne, the team responsible for Montaigne’s Fantastic Wreck clip and works for Kimbra amongst others.

Perfectly complementing the song’s grandeur and sure to set tongues wagging for all the right reasons, the video is set in an expansive desert and shows the striking pop starlet being dramatically thrust about by unseen energies. There is falling and flying and an astoundingly commanding performance from Montaigne, not to mention a magnificent finish.

“I didn’t come up with the plotline, but I did drive the inspiration behind it visually as I had the very distinct idea of falling and flying in my head, not because of the ‘wings’ metaphor, but because I am obsessed with this video game called Kingdom Hearts - a game which formed much of my creative style,” explains Montaigne. "I referenced very particular moments in the introductory sequences from the games and Guy, John, Haley and their team turned it in to the narrative that you see. Kingdom Hearts explores dreaming, memory and connections to others in a fantastical and surreal way with which I’ve always been enamoured.”

Co-written, produced and mixed by Tony Buchen (The Preatures, Andy Bull) and recorded at Albert Studios, Clip My Wings is about the value of autonomy and standing up for what you believe in. Already receiving substantial radio support from Triple j and community radio across the country, it boasts a bigger sound for Montaigne and an even more opulent and dramatic melody than what we’ve heard from this vocally gifted songstress.

“Clip My Wings is about attempting to push back against your oppressors,” explains Montaigne. “I am resilient and have become more self-confident, I am less afraid to stand up for myself and my self-belief and I am expressing that through this song.”
