“Snow Angels” Single with Animated Music Video
Indianapolis-based songwriter Ross Davis is rejoicing this winter season with the release of his new single “Snow Angels,” a joyous song that can gingerly carry your imagination aloft among a quiet snowfall or glistening winterscape. While there are countless fine songs out there having a winter theme, whether it entails Christmas or any other occasion, “Snow Angels” resonates with a unique flavor.
Seasoned with the folky strum of mandolins and the chiming of piano, “Snow Angels” is a fresh winter anthem that offers an ode to the winter season, with Davis singing, “I wake up to the sunrise, and look out my window, what I see outside, is a winter wonderland,” as he takes delight in “dancing with the snow angels.” Davis’s breathy vocal is a comfort amid the snow storm, gentle and sweet, with blossoming images of spending warm times with family and friends during the winter season.
Accompanying the song’s release is an innovative music video that employs stop-motion animation across a chalkboard, including hand-drawn snow crystals and an intricate illustration of a winterscape composed by five kids. The video’s animation was directed by Keiko Sono of New York-based Flick Book Studio.
