WILLIAM CRIGHTON RELEASES SECOND SINGLE '2000 CLICKS'

 

Ahead of his extensive Australian tour with fellow songwriter Claire Anne Taylor, William Crighton releases ‘2000 Clicks’ today. It's the second single from his acclaimed self-titled debut record.


‘2000 Clicks’ illustrates Crighton’s literary approach to lyricism. The stirring track explores ideas of fate and free will, the ways in which we navigate the everyday chaos of life and either get caught or evade the challenges it throws at us. The scene is set with the first line "2000 Clicks from the Queensland border, lying in a ditch out west of Wagga".
“2000 Clicks is a story from growing up out in the Riverina,” Crighton explains. “We humans seem to suffer from the ‘grass is greener’ syndrome. Sometimes it is, sometimes not. Whether it's getting out of your home town headed for Queensland or setting off in a space ship to Mars, running from the mess we make instead of cleaning it up is an approach that always has an element of appeal.”


Accompanying the release of ‘2000 Clicks’ is a music video directed by Crighton, his wife Julieanne as well as drummer and collaborator Reuben Alexander. Low fi and gritty, the clip is centred around William's performance with subtle psychedelic moments reflecting the idiosyncratic images and questions the wind brings to the mind sometimes.               

 

 

Crighton’s journey started in the Riverina and has taken him around the world, with extensive time spent in the USA and China. Returning to Australia, he settled momentarily on the rugged banks of Burrinjuck Dam, near the South West Slopes region of NSW. Whilst there, he recorded his self-titled debut album. It’s a stirring songbook that captures the essence of our continent whilst exploring the variables of life.
