Gone West: Slow Down Lyric Video

in 2D Animation

“We explained to them what our vision of the song was when we listened to it — you know, driving through canyons, whether it’s on the coast or in the middle of the country — and it’s two people in a car and falling in love. So the animation they put in the lyric video we thought was so cute and beautiful,” explains Caillat, 34.

Working with Colbie Caillat her band Gone West, Grasshorse created the lyric video for their single "Slow Down". Pondering the lyrics, we played with the idea a romance between a couple of fireflies who paralleled the main couple in the song.  They became the 'yellow light', a manifestation of the love of the main couple.  The lyric video was animated in Toon Boom Harmony, Adobe Animate, and Adobe After Effects.  Backgrounds were illustrated traditionally in graphite and colored in Adobe Photoshop.

Lyrics:

Lost in the buzz of a busy street
I never saw the leaves fall
Coffee to wake and some wine to sleep
But I don’t feel it at all

You’re like the wind rolling in on a summer blaze
Lazy river in the rapids I race
Just a minute laying next to you and time stands still

You make me wanna slow down
Baby make it easy
I’ll take the long way round
Just as long as you’re with me
In a city full of neon
Burning too bright
Baby you’re my yellow light
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down

We’ll take a walk after midnight
And stay in bed until noon
Drivin the curves of the coast line
And trace every inch of you
I like the rush when it’s us on a getaway
Soak it up take it in at our pace
You know how to make my heart beat fast but time stands still

You make me wanna slow down
Baby make it easy
I’ll take the long way round
Just as long as you’re with me
In a city full of neon
Burning too bright
Baby you’re my yellow light
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down

Ooo

You make me wanna slow down
Baby make it easy
I’ll take the long way round
Just as long as you’re with me
In a city full of neon
Burning too bright
Baby you’re my yellow light
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down
You make me wanna Slow Down
