LA-based indie rock artist Taiwo Heard has taken a stylish approach with his latest music video “Frontier to Eternity,” joining forces with talented Canadian animator Tzanko Tchangov (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic). The result is a high-speed, animated musical adventure.
The storyline features Taiwo Heard and his female partner-in-crime fleeing in a semi-truck from motorcycle-bound werewolves; the pacing perfectly complements Taiwo’s signature indie rock/electro vibe.
“...recalls the best of the hard-rocking Queens of The Stone Age, but it’s the song’s fever dream of a video, featuring the work of Canadian animator, Tzanko Tchangov, that will truly set your pulse racing..” Brad Liberti, Screenpicks
Fans of Taiwo Heard, as well as those hearing his music for the first time, will enjoy his poignant lyrics and melody driven style. “Frontier to Eternity” is the third video release from his 2013 album of the same name. His dynamic repertoire suggests elements of Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters, and David Bowie.
Taiwo also produces music for other artists as well. Recent projects include co-writing and producing the song “Sight of the Sound” for cosplay singer Gentry Roth. The video for this single is featured on “Nerdist”, “Daily Dot,” and io9.
Taiwo Heard’s passion for music was set in motion at the age of 6, when he began teaching himself piano—by listening to his older brother play. He began writing his own songs in high school, also taking up the guitar. He is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, and his musical influences range from classic rock to 70’s psychedelia.
Video Director and Animator Tzanko Tchangov’s credits include; “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic,” “Pound Puppies,” and “Littlest Pet Shop.” Canadian by way of Bulgaria and the US, Tzanko now spends his time doing freelance animation, drinking the finest craft beers, and searching for Elvis.
