New Darren Hanlon Video – Butterfly Bones released!
The new music video for Darren Hanlon’s latest single Butterfly Bones, directed by his long-time collaborator Natalie Van Den Dungen, once again astounds with its simple beauty. Studded with a motley cast of Australian personalities, Bob Ellis (novelist, playwright, political speechwriter), Tina Bursill (Prisoner, Skyways), Jess Tovey (Home and Away), Rhys Muldoon, Bec Rigby and Darren himself weave a tale of a son who dreams up a grand scheme to cheer up his ailing mother. But it’s the location itself, an old abandoned drive-in, that is arguably the biggest star. Butterfly Bones plays more like a short film than a regular music video, with its use of pathos, humour and nostalgia for a faded era of Australian history.
