“U kin B the Sun” Frazey Ford

Frazey Ford has shared a new video for the title track, off her current release “U kin B the Sun.” The clip was directed Brian Lye and artist/bandmate Caroline Ballhorn. Ford set out to visually represent the connections between the cosmos, the sun, the land, the sea, and humans. Shot using vintage film lenses and employing all analogue visual effects, the video feels like the album is having an out-of-body experience, taking on three dimensions and reflecting on the world around it. Frazey describes:

“’U Kin Be the Sun’ explores the vast and eternal within us, the reoccurring ancient mythology of the individual as the universal, as light, as the sun. Shot on location on Gabriola Island, British Columbia, traditional territory of the Snuneymuxw nation. The moonscape sandstone caves, lush rainforests and the ocean itself, serve as hypnotic and reverent imagery, the transcendent experience of communion with the natural world. Paper animation weaves between the dimensions of reality, of self, of the natural realm, and the cosmos.”

U kin B the Sun was recorded at John Raham’s Afterlife Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, featuring her Vancouver musicians Darren Parris, Leon Power, Craig McCaul, and Caroline Ballhorn, Erilk Nielsen along with Phil Cook on keys, U kin B the Sun follows Ford’s 2014 release Indian Ocean, an album made with members of legendary Memphis soul band The Hi Rhythm Section.
