Indie Artist & Producer HAYDEN CALNIN Shares New Track       

Today, Australian electro-folk singer-songwriter and producer Hayden Calnin shares slow burning new single “Oh What A Mess I Am In” along with the official “out of this world” video that Hayden created himself. Hayden explains, “The song is my love letter to universe, and all the mess within it. I get a lot of comfort and guidance from the things I read, most notably Brian Cox and Alan Watts, one a particle physicist, the other a philosopher. I’m big into space, it’s physics and the big questions around it as anyone who knows me is aware, but maybe something my listeners aren’t aware of. I wanted to sum up a little piece of that into 4 minutes, and this was the result.”

Hayden adds, “I’ve been playing a lot of video games over the Victorian Lockdown over the last 9 months. I’ve never been a huge fan of spending hours in front of a screen, but the last year has had me filling in some off time with other people’s playable imaginations. I wanted to make a video that felt like a small part of an epic journey. Space although complex, is a lot of emptiness, and I wanted to reflect that through telling a short story of someone who gets a glimmer of hope while feeling lost and floating aimlessly through the ether. I spent a lot of time trying to teach myself very basic visual fx, and thought I’d try and make a very c-grade sci fi clip. This was the result. Pretty cool what you can make with a bit of time up your sleeve and some very lovely friends willing to step in and help my weird vision come to life.”
