Watch the charming visual now, exclusively on MILKY!
Australian musician Riley Pearce has today unveiled his new single, Bottle It Up. If you’re hanging to see the accompanying visual, watch the songs charming music video right here on MILKY before its release!
Created by West Australian artist Kendra Fewster, the animated visual tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: the sun and the moon. We follow their love story as they leave messages in bottles to each other. Fewster has worked with a number of Australian artists, including Eskimo Joe and Dan Nash
Speaking of the track, the musician shares: "I really searched for a way to capture the essence of Bottle It Up, those times that you feel love but don't necessarily profess it to someone. I expanded on the idea of how the Sun and the Moon have this coexistence. Completely harmonious they work like clockwork. Taking it metaphorically into a new realm where the two exchange bottled up moments of their day to share with the other. Sharing the experiences that the other may miss during their visibility. Counting down the days until they share an eclipse for a moment, the Sun and the Moon, although they bottle up their feelings, just enjoy each other's existence and it is all that they really need."
An introspective singer-songwriter, Riley often writes about his difficulty coping with change and his love-hate relationship with nostalgia. With family spread across the globe and his own stretches of living in a number of different cities, Riley’s lyrics reflect that all too human need for connection. His honest songwriting, and relatable storytelling has resonated both in Australia and overseas, with over 50 million streams to date.
