Shy Layers – “Running” Video

Shy Layers – “Running” Video

What started as a fan video inspired by “mid-2000s machinima aesthetics” and executed by the Second Life engine resulted in the official video for “Running,” the groovy-yet-modern track from the Brooklyn and Atlanta-based solo act Shy Layers (aka multi-instrumentalist JD Walsh). The video, created by Ben Sisto, depicts a bare human figure painting in a world filled with clipping and unfinished textures, providing a clever contrast to Walsh’s creation, a lush and fully-realized song that blends natural and synthetic sounds — originally the penultimate track on the Shy Layers EP, 2. Both Walsh and Sisto know how to exercise restraint in a way that warrants numerous listens/views. Check it out below.
