Before recording their debut album, Big Smoke's front-man, Adrian Slattery, was diagnosed with terminal esophageal cancer. Between chemotherapy treatments, Slattery recorded the work below.
Slattery passed away this past May, but not before he asked the Alabama Shakes producer Shawn Everett to come to Melbourne and help the band finish the project. The album is due out this month.
Slattery's best friend Sean Lynch directed the video below, to which he says: “We allowed the partners to re-discover each other’s faces and see each other in a way they’d forgotten, capturing their journey through sincere, subconscious body language that reveals what we can’t hide — fear, regret, loneliness and ultimately pure joy.”
