After a number of releases (two albums and an EP) under the name J M S Harrison, Melbourne musician James Spencer Harrison has recorded his next album under Fleeting Persuasion.
With the first single from the new, as yet untitled record released last month ('Shaken'), James is back with another slice of Fleeting Persuasion in the form of 'Set Foot'.
It has moments similar to early 2000s Aussie indie acts Gersey and Bluebottle Kiss with melancholic rock riffs and James' smoky, strained vocals adding extra life to 'Set Foot'.
Recently in New Zealand, James decided to start filming the natural beauty surrounding him with an idea to create a video for 'Set Foot'.
"Very recently on a trip to the south of New Zealand, I decided it might be nice to capture the amazing scenery in places like Queenstown, Arrowtown, Milford Sound for a video clip for 'Set Foot'.
"With the help of family doing some filming, I edited it all together down there as well. Lots of waterfalls, mountains, dark clouds. I felt it captured the mood of the song rather well."
Today, scenestr is thrilled to premiere the 'Set Foot' video for your viewing pleasure.
"It's a song with a big chord progression," adds James, "a stretched but comfortable vocal melody, and some fun but haunting guitar parts.
"Originally, the chorus had no lyrics but one day I decided to add the words: 'it starts to fade, and take your place...' which I felt completed the song."
The ten-track Fleeting Persuasion album was recorded at Crosstown Studios in Melbourne and is to be released later in the year.
