Walk Forward In Motion

‘Walk forward in motion’ written and produced by Kiwi musician Phil Stoodley is accompanied by the enigmatic animation by Russian award winning director Andrey Shushkov.

The video was adapted from the short film ‘Invention of love’ and re-edited by New Zealand director Miles Murphy. Lyrics in this electronic pop song guides us through the slight Steampunk themed music video to unveil a plot of classic love, set amongst an industrialized world of invention and its impact on nature and human emotion. A theme which every viewer can relate to in this fast paste and changing world.

This track appears on Phil’s newly released debut album “No Surprise”.

The first fully-fledged debut solo album from Phil, ‘No Surprise’ is a gentle midday mix, easy on the ears, void of pretention yet brimming with meaning. An album for those long, country drives, those relaxing Sunday afternoons. From the French twist Falling Apart to Stormy Weather ‘s coaxing pop, Phil takes us all on a personal journey.

Ironically, the album is surprisingly diverse; a mixed array of tracks from an artist who has successfully made a progression from his rock origins to the contemporary and quintessential sounds.

In recent times this dynamic artist has been writing, recording and producing from his own home studio both his own original songs along with those of emerging Kiwi artist, Hanna Grace. 2012 saw Phil co-write, produce and feature in a duet with Hanna Grace called In The Rain. Phil has also written a number of melodies for TV, film and commercials.

Early 2010 brought Phil more recognition with the release of his first solo single Waiting For Thursday. Co-written with acclaimed New Zealand actor Leighton Cardno, the track entered into the New Zealand RadioScope 100 official music charts.

From mid 2012 until now Phil has been touring around South East Asia, performing, writing, and adding weight to his already heavy pack of experience.
