Taylor Knox used images of his family he had dug up in the video for ‘Running Into Love’.
“‘Running Into Love’ is one of the more nostalgic sounding songs on the record, so I wanted the video to signal some of those feelings. I came across my Grandfather’s old slides from the 70s and it became clear almost immediately that we had such a wealth of imagery to play with for the video. I reached out to my friend Layne Hinton, who is an amazing artist, to use one of her many projectors to view them. Layne and Sagan MacIsaac directed the video, drew on acetate and selected the slides while Layne filmed me playing and dancing in her art studio. The video came from a very playful, DIY spirit of friends collaborating and creating something together,” Knox said in a statement.
The track is found on his debut album Love, out on June 9 on Cadence Music. It’s the follow-up to his 2015 EP Lines. Knox worked with Alfie Jurvanen (aka Bahamas) to produce a few tracks along with co-producer Josh Korody.
Jurvanen contributes his distinctive guitar sound on several track like he did on the EP and Molly Rankin of Alvvays contributes vocals, including on ‘Running Into Love’.
