“Sparrow,” the debut song from Hamilton’s Calcedon is an understated, breezy pop song, and an incredible first single from the burgeoning project. Straddling the line between mainstream and experimental, the song’s stumbling staccato rhythm bursts sets it apart from their contemporaries in the genre, building to a beautiful crescendo of the chorus and four-on-the-floor outro.
The video–directed by David Schuurman–uses Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, to dazzling effect focusing on the intense relationship an artist can have with their work when using such precision.
Echo, the debut album from Calcedon is out March 25th. Based on this, we expect great things.
