Watch Daniel Johns’ Striking Animated Video for ‘Going on 16’
The striking, Kelly Boulton-directed visual was made possible by the Newcastle International Animation Festival in Australia, which enlisted a bevy of local artists to create five-second clips that make up the nearly three-and-a-half minute video. Despite boasting a total of 43 individual animations, the new music video is impressively cohesive -- and beautiful! You can find the names of the artists behind each segment on the clip's YouTube page.
Talk marks Johns’ debut as a solo artist and his first album since the dissolution of his ‘90s alt-rock outfit, Silverchair, who put out their final album, Young Modern, in 2007. In a recent interview with Diffuser, the former Silverchair frontman denied the possibility of a reunion.
“I never like when people just say, ‘Oh yeah, it could happen,’” he said. “To be honest, I doubt it’s going to happen. To be really honest, I don’t want to string people along because that’s just f---ing bulls--- … I strongly doubt it will happen.”
