British folk singer/songwriter, Will Varley has released a video for his latest single ‘Seven Days’, a track taken from his forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Spirit of Minnie’ which will be available February 9th via Xtra Mile Recordings.
‘Seven Days’ showcases Varley’s talent for storytelling as well as his ability to write about the relatable, as the song speaks of our tendency to allow life’s milestone moments pass us by.
It seems Varley has a lesser known talent for creating videos, as he constructed the monochrome pixel art animation himself, the format is influenced by the classic 8-bit dos games of the 90’s that he played during his childhood (and maybe beyond).
Check out the video for yourself below:
To accompany the release of ‘Spirit of Minnie’, he will be heading out on a headlining tour around the UK, culminating with his largest headline show to date – the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire in London which coincides with the albums release on February 9th.
