Nick Batterham and Josh Meadows have known each other since the early 90s, when they were both in bands on Melbourne indie label Summershine. The duo are set to release their debut album together as The Bell Streets in April. Melodic pop lullaby “Fragile” is the first taste of what we can expect.
“I really loved the song and wanted to create a soft and groovy summer vibe to go with it,” director Ursula Woods explains.
“I see so much beauty in this close friendship and the moments shared throughout the road trip. I wanted to focus on the individuality of each person and also their connection with each other. Their youth, road trip experiences and floaty moments, all represent fragility to me. I feel both song and video are dreamy and full of wonder and reflection.”
“I shot this in Tasmania, near Port Arthur, a really stunning part of Australia. The car is a big stubborn old Toyota land-cruiser called Gloria.”
