BIG WILD Releases Video For “City of Sound”

Rising producer, composer and vocalist, Big Wild (aka Jackson Stell) has just released the music video for “City of Sound,” the magnetic single from his highly anticipated debut album, Superdream (released February 1, 2019 viaCounter Records). CLICK HERE to watch the video– a quirky, colorful audiovisual that mirrors the vibrant soundscapes of the track.

The project features twin actors, Jonathan and Edward Saxby, who represent the duality of self, as Stell notes:

“We all face creative blocks and inner struggles while making art. Overcoming them is usually a matter of getting back in touch with your voice and that’s what ‘City of Sound’ is all about.”

The video illustrates this internal conflict, as the twins multiply, initially appearing at odds with one another. Yet, over the course of the track, they eventually find harmony and unity, investing their energy & efforts in the same direction, so to speak, thus serving as a metaphor of the creative process, as Stell astutely perceives.

Big Wild is currently on a 18-date headlining U.S. tour with many dates sold out, bringing the album to life via a brand-new live show, replete with live instrumentation & accompanying vocalists, and paired with fresh visuals. Big Wild is also set to play additional Europe dates later this year, key U.S. festivals such as Firefly, Outside Lands, and Capitol Hill Block Party, as well as special performances with ODESZA on July 26 and July 27 at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
