sandy crow has released new single ‘Godard The Director’ alongside the phenomenal co-directed music video with Benjamin Darville. sandy crow is the alias of the long-awaited brand new musical project from acclaimed British actor and director, Jamie Flatters.

The track explores both the initial obsession with, and the subsequent destruction of a muse, Jamie illustrates how attempting to observe something’s beauty can then only be corrupted through the warped mind of his character, sandy crow. Jamie has once again collaborated with director Benjamin Darville, who he created the brilliant video to previous single, ‘Regret It’, with. This time the track has been shot both on colour and black and white film, celebrating the multitude of aesthetics film can grant. With the song’s title paying homage to Jean-Luc Godard, a pioneer of the French New Wave film movement, sandy’s approach highlights the complexity of how the same image, viewed through different styles, can have an alternate presentation within the same themes.

Discussing the new single, Jamie says “A big inspiration for the motifs in this song came from filmmaker Wim Wenders’ quote ‘The camera is a weapon against the tragedy of things, against their disappearing.’ taken from The Logic of Images (1988).”

Jamie Flatters, known for his incredible performance in Avatar: The Way Of The Water among others, is a multi-hyphenate creative and after five years of independently crafting his artistry, unleashed sandy crow earlier this year with his debut double single ‘LEARNING 037’ and ‘Ur best day’, before he followed up in April with ‘Regret It’ and his latest single ‘Handgun Wisdom’

sandy crow will also be making his first live appearance since going missing in 2003 at North London’s The Waiting Room, on 25th July 2024. Tickets are available HERE

Discussing the unveiling of his musical alias sandy crow earlier this year, Jamie said “sandy crow is an artist from South London currently flirting with pop music in a bastardised fashion. His influences range from music artists past and present, but perhaps most significantly, he’s influenced by the idea that these artists became. Who sandy crow will ultimately become seems premature to determine; nevertheless, a myriad of artistic obsessions will contribute to the mosaic of his image and sound. sandy crow is pop music’s trojan horse. What’s packaged as pop music hides something both rotten and refreshing, which will cause any American to crown him as the new general of the British Invasion music scene.”
