Adam French’s latest single, Weightless reflects the importance of shared burden, halved worries and the ever-changing landscape of a relationship. The song is taken from the artist’s forthcoming Weightless EP, which was released on 8th November.
The video for Weightless was shot in a single take and in ultra-slow motion and the result quite surreal, like being stuck in a metaphorical floating bubble. Drifting from room to room, in a haze of nostalgia, we see Adam and adolescents reverting to different childlike states in their attempt to escape and block out the harsh reality of becoming and being an adult.
Adam French is elf-taught multi-instrumentalist and creator of rich songs, full of depth, honesty and a cinematic quality. Songs and song-writing have always been a constant companion in Adam’s life. The singer songwriter grew up in Congleton (North West) and cut his teeth on the local gig circuit, before taking his music to London, where he now lives.
His new EP artwork was taken on film by French himself and set against a white tiled wall, the well-kept orange tree you’re looking at is currently stood in his flat-cum-cluttered 24/7 demo recording studio and rehearsal space, taking pride of place next to the stacks of keyboards, guitars and various bits of recording equipment. Most recently he was been touring and played numerous summer festivals including, Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, Boardmasters, Festival #6, Latitude just to name a few.
