Following the success of her single release, Elana Stone returns today with a charming and colourful animated video clip for ‘Permanent Limbo’.
Created by a Melbourne artist Luna Tunes, the video premiered earlier this week via Music Feeds. Fun and explorative in nature, the video clip cleverly depicts the narrative of the intertwining of human relationships, and more specifically how we relate through technology.
When explaining the vision of her video Elana explains she was “In the midst of recording the song I had an idea for an accompanying music video. It was essentially about the merging of humans and technology – the many pitfalls and wonders of this emerging industry. I decided to reach out to a Melbourne based artist that I came across who made beautiful caricatures of robots and cats and dogs for AIME – the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience. We set about bringing his beautiful colourful robot characters to life. The story shifted again and the result is an incredibly optimistic depiction of robots steadily gaining intelligence, personality and enlightenment.”
Rooted in a story of love and loss, the track is juxtaposed as a danceable, electronic pop anthem. ‘Permanent Limbo’ has been a hit since release, premiering with Zan Rowe on Double J Mornings, added to both Double J and ABC Radio rotation, spins on triple j Unearthed radio, as well as praise from tastemakers such as The AU Review’s ‘Track Of The Day’, NME Australia and more.
To celebrate the release of her re-emergence as a solo artist, Elana will be performing live in Sydney next month.
‘Permanent Limbo’ by Elana Stone is out now.
