With the help of director Julie Miller and cinematographer Lina Plioplyte, cupcakes and crayons explode into an invitation to dance in our Expert Recommendation of the day, Kelli Scarr‘s “Driftwood.”
Born a young girl in Monterey, California, Kelli Scarr found her first taste of the music business in Boston as a member of Moonraker. Following their breakup in 2005, Scarr wrote an Emmy nominated score for the HBO documentary In A Dream before joining Moby in 2009 for his Wait For Me album and tour.
Scarr’s connection to the cinematic serves her well in her video for “Driftwood,” a delightful flight of fancy that calls to mind hints of That Girl melded with the soundtrack of Godspell. Along Miller’s direction and Plioplyte’s cinematography, art direction was provided by Cassia Maher while Sarah Holmes did the choreography.
Kelli’s new album, Dangling Teeth, drops June 5th on Silence Breaks!
