New animated video for ‘Anything Could Happen’ from alternative hip-hop’s Dylan Cartlidge

The animation for the video is created by Brendan Huza (creator of animated videos for Alanis Morisette, Aretha Franklin and Grouplove.) and sees Dylan navigating his way through the trials of the day as he comes across hilarious and fun references close to his heart including characters from Horror films, the video game Habbo Hotel as well as the classic arcade game, Frogger. The video plays on themes from the upbeat and positive track which includes; fighting the everyday, finding strength on dark days and waking up and taking on whatever life throws at you, but doing so in a joyful, laugh out loud way.

The track itself is Dylan’s first offering in his collaboration with producer Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machine, Sam Smith) and was written during the third COVID-19 lockdown in the UK in order to deliver a positive message that ‘Anything Could Happen’ as long as you take small positive steps each day.

Dylan has had the following to say on the track: “I wrote this track during the third Covid-19 lockdown after I’d been shielding at home for 7 months, feeling fed up at not seeing my loved ones and struggling with my mental health. I focussed on my mantra of ‘Hope Above Adversity’ and I created the track to remind myself that with a bit of hope and courage, and if you put one foot in front of the other, anything really could happen!”
