Marlon Williams and Martin Sagadin create video for ‘Nothing Lasts’
Musician Marlon Williams and director Martin Sagadin have teamed up to create a dark and whimsical visual for ‘Nothing Lasts’, from Adam Hattaway and The Haunters 2019 album Crying Lessons.
Marlon Williams has directed several of his own music videos, but this is the first time he’s made a video for someone else.
“I was strung out and jet lagged at Brisbane airport at 4am in September last year, listening to Adam’s album Crying Lessons on repeat and for some impertinent reason decided I should conjure up a video for my favourite track,” explains Marlon Williams.
“I wanted a prosaic but surreal storyline to basically serve as a canvas for Adams ridiculous cherubic face and this beautiful song. So I went and talked to wizard of the silver screen Martin Sagadin and then we done made this.”
“Haunters guitarist Elmore Jones wrote this one,” says Adam Hattaway. “In keeping with the rest of theCrying Lessons album, it leans toward classic songwriting style, incorporating soul, R&B and tears.”
“A woozy swamp ballad that attempts to walk the fine line between cheese and crackers. As obvious as the title is, sometimes we need to remember that for better or worse, nothing lasts forever!”
