from the album 'Adventures In Your Own Backyard', released April 16, 2012
For their latest video, “Blackwind”, the Patrick Watson band decided to hold an open competition for aspiring filmmakers, and were amazed by the breadth and variety of the entries they received. After much agonizing debate they finally settled on the video by fellow Canadian Chloé Poirier-Sauvé, as it not only perfectly matched their song, but also stands on its own as a work of art. With its beautiful sand art visuals, the video seamlessly blends animation with the static nature of its medium. As soon as you watch this video you will see for yourself why Patrick Watson chose it as the official video for their latest single.
