Watch John Hickman’s new video for “Hello Hello” now:
John Hickman tells a story through his music, and director Liam Morgan paints the picture, in the music video for “Hello Hello”. The video focuses on the story of a couple going on a journey together, re-discovering and re-experiencing all the happiness, beauty, and good that the world’s been showing this whole time.
John Hickman’s music video for “Hello Hello” opens up to the gorgeous city skyline and lots of green spaces scattered all over the landscape. The scene then focuses on a girl freshening up in the morning. As she’s on her doorstep about to head out to the big city, she’s touched by someone and turns into a moving animation. As she walks and skips at an exciting yet steady pace, she touches some of the things and even a person who crosses paths with her, also turning them into animations.
After a great day exploring and seeing the city in a whole new light, what looks like the first time in her life, the girl later returns to being a full color person again. She meets a man face-to-face on the stop, and he looks like he’s been her lover this whole time, and the one who turned her into an animation and inspired her solo journey of discovery across the city in the first place.
“Hello Hello” is looking to be one of John Hickman’s signature hits. Listening to the song, you can feel the deep passion and personality that John put into writing and singing it. The universally appealing message of rediscovery, and a newfound appreciation for the world, still shines through in the flurry of catchy beats, good vibes, and the heartwarming harmony will definitely resonate with a lot of listeners out there.
John Hickman sung all the tracks on his solo album, “Remnants”, with his soothing and cheerful vocals, and filled in for the dynamic lead and background tracks.
