Sydney songwriter Chris Lanzon launched his debut EP Melancholy earlier this month, a set of songs that gravitate round heartbreak and therapeutic, self-discovery and progress.
Every of the six songs has a very cinematic high quality, so it’s no shock to be taught the musician has been engaged on creating a full visible accompaniment to associate with the EP.
At the moment, we’re premiering a part of it with the video for ‘Diamonds on the Water’, directed by Lanzon himself and filmed by collaborator Andrew Clements (Andii).
