SLOW DANCER Shares "It Goes On" Video via Billboard, Starts First U.S. Tour in June

Melbourne, Australia's Slow Dancer - the moniker of singer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Simon Okely - will release his stunning new album In A Mood on June 9th via ATO Records, and today he shares a simply moving music video for its current single "It Goes On." Watch the video here via Billboard, and read their profile on Slow Dancer.

I wrote the treatment for the ‘It Goes On’ video with my ex lover of 14 years. We wanted to explore what the things we choose say about us. I have a theory about writing love songs; they are a curse; they inadvertently herald the end of the very relationship they here intended to praise. In this instance, I was painfully correct. We filmed my sections in the room I’d just moved into fresh after the breakup. I took only a suitcase of clothes, my grandmother’s fan and my songwriting equipment. After the first edit of the video came back, I was embarrassed by how bare my room was in comparison to the couples’. My cheap, new, self-constructed furniture was void of any real character. It’s honest though - a guiding principle! - and now I’m kinda glad we captured that space at that time.
— Okely explains the deep meaning for the subtle yet striking music video
