Just before fashion week this year I got an exciting call late one night asking if I had a couple of days free to work with Ruby Frost on her latest music video entitled "Porcupine".
OF COURSE I SAID YES! Within an hour I was sketching away with Ruby and her creative team and set to work on creating a 3m long dress with Morticia Adams as a starting reference. I was SO nervous to be working with such a babe! Legitimate stardom!
"Ruby’s character is based on a fantastical old world female goddess, and the interweaving images, drawn from the natural world, echo her attempts to isolate and protect herself.”
I asked Ruby what the reaction to the new single and video has been like so far:
"So far the reaction to Porcupine has been really cool. I didn't know what to expect, but some new radio stations have been keen to play it like George FM and even ZM which has never happened before in my musical journey!
Without further ado, check out Porcupine below:And people have been excited by the clip; the best reaction was when I played it to my brother and he freaked out at all the animation. I was really lucky to work on the clip with some very talented friends, everyone worked really hard and it's come together perfectly - from you making my incredible show-stopping dress to Ralph nailing all the animation... I'm so happy with it and think it conveys the dark, prickly meaning of the song really well."
I am beyond impressed with the final product!
Ruby Frost is playing a Bowie themed gig tonight at The Basement from 9pm with Glass Owls, Salvi Stone & DJ Andrew Tidball. Also, this Sunday at Viva Waitakere with Artisan Guns and Lisa Crawley at around 5pm.
