Oli Fox Premieres New Music Video for “Player 2”
- British singer-songwriter Oli Fox has dropped a new music video for “Player 2”. The song was released on June 11th, following “Young” released last February.
He created the song during quarantine. “I've always written my own songs but never touched the production side before”, Oli Fox said of the song. “I started experimenting with samples of old games such as Mario, Space Invaders and PacMan and tried adding into the song before Danny helped me gluing everything together.”
The video entirely self-shot by Oli on his laptop, phone and webcam with the help of friends, was inspired by the numerous dating in lockdown stories he had read online which really resonated with the lyrics. His friend Laura Manners directed the video and artwork shoot from her home in London while he filmed and shot content on lockdown in Scotland with his girlfriend Bow Anderson, who also features in the video.
He explained about the video, “I had the idea of using all the platforms that people have been using in isolation, such as Zoom, House Party, Tik Tok and Instagram to keep in touch with their loved ones and their friends”, he adds about the new video, “I thought how cool it would be to film a home-made performance video through my laptop to show this new perspective of a lonely lover in quarantine reaching out to his Player 2, to hope that she gets the message. It was a lot of fun to shoot, though a bit strange to have your house become the set.”
