Addy (NEW VIDEO) by December Streets

The December Streets released ‘Addy’ as a single earlier this year in anticipation for their upcoming album, and today it’s been followed up with visuals in the form of a brand new music video directed and shot by Tristan Coetzee and Zayn Opperman from Run Jump Fly Creations.

The concept of the video ties in very closely with the meaning of the song; the idea of never growing up or losing touch with what makes you happy. The story follows a young boy who begins drawing on a sticky note, clearly passionate about it. The character he is drawing then comes to life, jumping out of the drawing and going on adventures around the room. In the end we realise it is the progression of the boy’s life from young to old, looking back on his life, still drawing and doing what he loves.

‘It’s basically the adventure of a lifetime through an animation.’

The video was shot over the course of one day and night which mainly consisted of putting up sticky notes around a room for 14 hours, and then photographing them. Prior to that Zayn spent around 3 days creating 1500 illustrations of the character one sees in the video. The shoot was interesting as the entire video was shot using stop motion – the team needed to take thousands of photos of thousands of sticky note illustrations that they then stitched together to make a flowing animation.

‘The song and its lyrics revolve around young minds with no limitations and a hunger for adventure. This video portrays what goes on in those youthful minds, and how the old man in the video has kept his mind young over the years.’

December streets release Addy (never growing up)

Sheer is pleased to announce the release of a brand new song by December Streets entitled Addy (never growing up).

Addy (Never Growing Up) was written around a year ago by Tristan Coetzee in one evening. The song has a deeper meaning to it – challenging people to remain free-minded and young at heart. The song has the signature December Streets feel-good-hook to it, with the band’s new massive, fresh sound driving it, as heard in recent songs such as Stay By Me, the band’s previous single.

“Addy was my best friend when I was growing up. He taught me that life is an adventure. I don’t think very many people understood our free young and wild minds at that stage, but we did not care; we were immersed in our own awesome world and loved it! Although Addy passed on too soon, I will never forget our friendship. The song is about our young free minds, and never losing touch with that.”

Fans can expect to pump their radios to full volume, spontaneously road trip and sing their lungs out on the way when hearing Addy (Never Growing Up).

“When you hear ADDY, close your eyes, and think back to a particular moment that you can remember when you were ultimately happy and content, spending time with your friends or going on an adventure. That time when you were on top of the world. That time when you were invincible.”
