GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY. Releases Innovative Video for ‘Animate’

Teaming up with esteemed visual artist Rebecca Hendin, GET CAPE. WEAR CAPE. FLY. aka Sam Duckworth has released a new clip for latest track Animate.

Taking inspiration from the title with help from artist Rebecca Hendin, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. has bestowed us with a saturated modern world to walk amongst.

The video for Animate reflects the harmonious and dulcet energy of the track. It is also thought-provoking, hinting to how technology can disconnect us from the natural world.

Duckworth explains:

‘Animate’ is a song about taking a step back, drinking in the view. In a world of rushing around sometimes the long way is the best way. More peaceful, more beautiful, less rushed. I’m a huge fan of animation, the attention to detail and the endeavour of the human hand. It allows new worlds to be created and for imaginative takes on the present. The song is called Animate because of the belief that sometimes it’s just best to do it by hand, with time and attention to detail. Rebecca Hendin is one of my favourite illustrators. She did an absolutely incredible job of my Recreations album artwork and I’m absolutely made up that she agreed to do the artwork and video for this single.

Animate is taken from his Young Adult album, out now on Xtra Mile Recordings.

With full band by this side, Duckworth hits the road in October for some UK live shows.
