Henry the Archer is allowing Weekly readers to see a sneak preview of its new video “Pillow People,” which will be available for public consumption on Monday. The song is from 2017’s Zero is a Number.
The subject of the video is a time-lapsed drawing by artist Austin James of a photo (taken by Jerry Jonestown Massacre podcast host and Star-T photographer Dustin Schneider) featuring frontman Richard Hennessy. Zachary Dyck edited the piece.
Hennessy said the song is about the distance between him and his daughters.
“Its written like a letter to them,” he said. “It’s a song about loneliness … and how no matter far apart, we share the same star in the night sky.”
A goal of the project, Hennessy added, was to bring artistic mediums together.
“Art connects people, and I wanted to celebrate that,” he said.
