Miles Calder Shares Video For ‘Pushing & Pulling’

Presently midway through his nationwide tour, 2022 Best Folk Artist finalist Miles Calder shares the official video for his new single ‘Pushing & Pulling’. Directed by Matilda Boese-Wong, edited by Martin Sagadin (who also co-produced the clip) and shot entirely on 16mm film by Ezra Simons (Earth Tongue), the leafy visuals tint the world with the emotions of a burgeoning love. Calder’s bold, primary coloured outfits pop against the browns and greens of Newtown’s Truby King Park forest as he sings, “As long as I want you I’ll put myself through it all.” Such love is as exciting as the prospect of a mail delivery, yet as disappointing at finding an empty letterbox.

You can catch Calder performing as an acoustic duo with guitarist Chris Armour throughout Aotearoa on the songwriter’s slightly rejigged single release tour this winter. Made with support from NZ On Air, hit play on the new video for ‘Pushing & Pulling’ and check out Calder’s updated gig details below — including newly announced dates in Wellington, New Plymouth and Palmerston North…

“After working with director Matilda Boese-Wong on the Belladonna video for Love Like This, we wanted to work together again on another video, this time for Miles’ awesome new track. The main challenge was balancing out the playfulness with the discipline that shooting on film-stock requires and I was impressed to see Matilda once again direct a polished video while keeping it colourful and cute.” — Martin Sagadin
