Music Promo for Ross From Friends
While Ross from Friends’ - AKA Felix Clary Weatherall’s - debut album “Family Portrait” was dedicated in part to his parents, the new 12” “Epiphany” is an homage to (and named after) Clary Weatherall’s sister: “One of the most important role models I have”.
TN’s film for ‘Epiphany’ guides us on a breadcrumb trail to collective transcendence. Through our journey we follow the traces that chart the transformation of a culture, it's abandoning of scientific conventional progress and the evolution of a musical enlightenment and psychedelic renaissance.
For this track in particular, Clary Weatherall drew inspiration from sci-fi movies. “I wanted the release to play on the idea of a desolate physical and social landscape becoming a utopia from a communal epiphany - or revolution”.
“Family Portrait” - hailed as “a powerful debut” by Crack Magazine - was described by Mixmag as “a gliding and glittering tour de force” in their ‘Albums of the Year 2018’ roundup. While NME praised Clary Weatherall’s unique sonic identity as “a mind-melting picture that takes in house, techno, jazz and ambient music, and ties it together to make something distinctly unique” and Rolling Stone declared him “a master of fun, gooey textures”. Similar praise came from the likes of Resident Advisor, The Wire, Pitchfork, AV Club, Loud & Quiet, DJ Mag, Clash, PopMatters, FADER and more.
