Premiere: Liz Green - Haul Away!

A mini Odyssey...

There's no one like Liz Green.

From her distinctive voice down to her highly imaginative songwriting, the English artist seems to dwell in a world of her own.

Thankfully, there's a few capable of reaching her. Commissioning a video for her sea-faring, colourful track 'Haul Away!' the songwriter opted to work with Elle Brotherhood.

The results are striking. Covered in blue paint, the stop motion clip continually twists and turns, with Liz Green seeming to enter a fantasy world.

Premiering on Clash today (April 10th), Liz Green had the following to say about the video:

"It's essentially mini-Odyssey. A homemade epic of tiny proportions. A journey from a grey world where you don't quite fit in to a colourful island where you do. Well, a place where everyone is equally odd, so your inherant oddness is not quite so apparent. The bulk of it was made and filmed during one weekend before Christmas last year. It was one of the nicest times I've ever had. Good friends, paint, glue, glitter and mountains of cardboard. I imagine this is how it felt for Michel Gondry when he made 'The Science of Sleep'. To coin a quote from Monty Python... If you enjoy watching this video half as much as we enjoyed making it. Then we've enjoyed it twice as much as you… But i do hope you enjoy it. - Liz"

Watch it now.
