Praised for both lyrics and music by Bob Harris on Radio 2 earlier this year, Broken Boat have won a well-deserved reputation on the London folk scene for their beautifully crafted …twisting melodies..of love and loss‟. Now they look set to carve out a reputation for their visual creativity as well. Their new animated music video, Peace and Quiet, is being released to accompany the title track of their debut EP with independent record label, Which Wolf Wins.
An enchantingly rich visual texture forms a stylised background of sea and sky against which are played out the adventures of a plucky little sailing boat (the eponymous Broken Boat). The animation was created by Broken Boat‟s talented singer-songwriter Dan and multi-instrumentalist Brendan Kearney who are also partners in Molk Design. Its remarkable technical quality is a prodigious achievement for a first animation by two 23 year olds whose training has encompassed architecture and book illustration, but not animation.
