The lovely Fiach has a new video to go along with his latest track Lullabye. It’s a really cool video because he learnt and sang the song backwards while walking backwards. The video was then reversed and whoila, you get what you see.
It was shot as a one take, no edit video which is really cool. Obviously they have listened to We Cut Corners – ‘Today I realised I Could go Home Backwards’. Song appears on début album ‘So I’ available on iTunes.
