Moving Panoramas Share New Video For ADD Heart with Billboard, Sophomore Album Out 2/22Moving Panoramas Share New Video For ADD Heart with Billboard, Sophomore Album Out 2/22
by BWW News Desk - Jan 16, 2019

Austin's Moving Panoramas have revealed the official video for their new single 'ADD Heart' from their highly anticipated sophomore album In Two out February 22 via Modern Outsider (pre-order). The video which was directed by Willi Patton premiered at Billboard can also be shared at YouTube. About the video Patton says, 'We were honored to be approached by Leslie Sisson of Moving Panoramas to do a music video for their new single, 'ADD Heart.' I knew immediately upon hearing the song that the energy needed to be high, and I really wanted to capture the feeling of not being able to focus, narratively as if the video itself suffers from ADD. It pushes you along in one direction, only to quickly switch course, pick up on some other thread, leaving more unanswered questions than resolutions. We're always so grateful to musicians for letting us experiment, to treat their work as a solid canvas to splash some paint on, deconstruct and then clumsily attempt to put back together.' 'ADD Heart' will be available on all streaming services this Friday. (more...)
