“Beautifully produced and deftly executed.” – PIGEONS AND PLANES
“Listen to Woodes once, and you won’t be able to resist returning,
time and time again.” – Indie Shuffle
Melbourne artist/producer Woodes who recently released her single ‘Rise’ to much praise, today is releasing the accompanying video, which follows Woodes through her natural and magical world. ‘Rise’ was shot on location in NSW Blue Mountains and South Coast incorporating many different elements into the bewitching clip like fire, water and earth. The clip was directed by Laura Nagy (Vera Blue) and follows Woodes as she teaches others to ‘Rise’ while incorporating some incredible scenery.
“For this song when i wrote it I saw fire… cliffs… and smoke…. The character that formed in my head was strong and she incorporated a range of elements in her design. It has opened my eyes to how beautiful and fun working with strangers can be.”– Woodes
