Waterstrider: Frayed

Watch the video for the new Waterstrider single Frayed, a feelgood song about loss. The video is made up of 40,000 photographs. Director Marta Dymek:

From the moment I first heard “Frayed” I could tell that it was telling a story of trying to get something one can’t have. Being in the presence of something unattainable. It reminded me of those dreams where something amazing almost happens with someone, but then the mind interrupts it and puts all these obstacles in the way. My dreams rarely have any satisfying ending to them. Using only photographs in the form of stop motion and not your regular video, I wanted to show that broken dreamlike feeling of longing—illustrated beautifully through the choreography by Zander Brown. I teamed up with an amazing photographer Anastasiia Sapon, knowing that she could fully convey that emotion through her photography.

The track will be included on the forthcoming OIM Vol. 1 album, the first release on the indie label Oim Records showcasing Oakland indie bands.
