We’re proud to present ‘Vision Glitch’, a short film by Anton Coene and Echo Beatty. After the recordings of Echo Beatty’s new record ‘Vision Glitch’ that came out just a few weeks ago, the two hopped in a van and simply took off.
Echo Beatty's Annelies Van Dinter and photographer Anton Coene likely crossed paths during one of their musical adventures years ago, perhaps even at a gas station. Through sharing vans and hotel rooms, they connected on both personal and professional levels, building a friendship that has withstood the highs and lows of their lives. They’re no strangers.
When confusion hit the world and eventually subsided, they found themselves feeling a certain void within themselves. They weren't disconnected from one another, but rather, they were disconnected from what they had come to know about themselves. The world's engine had started running again, but they weren't quite inside the vehicle. They weren't lost, per se, but they had somehow become misplaced and were wondering about their essence once again.
It was then that Annelies started working on her third Echo Beatty album, and Anton, who had become a new dad, figured out how babies work and how to live a life next to that. They decided to embark on a journey to search for their essence with a van and not much of a plan. During one of the hottest weeks in recent years, they got into the car and started driving east. Because in the east is where the sun rises and east is what sounded best.
"Vision Glitch" is the result of that search. Packed with instruments and cameras, they simply started rolling and, for once, didn't wonder what the heck they were doing or why they were doing it.
ECHO BEATTY is the moniker of ANNELIES VAN DINTER. With an arresting voice and distinct guitar playing, Van Dinter's songwriting and performances ooze an urgency and intensity, grabbing the listener by the shoulders for a ride to the exciting realms of her music. A punker at heart, Van Dinter plays with the tension between bold, gritty guitars and infectious melodies with soft and warm layers, creating her unique musical territory in indie rock and alternative pop.
ANTON COENE is a notorious photographer who calls the picturesque town of Ghent, Belgium home. He has established himself as a prominent figure in the music scene, working closely with numerous bands and musicians (Trixie Whitley, RKTKN, Balthazar, Blackbox Revelation, Blood Red Shoes…). With a keen eye for detail and a deep appreciation for the art of music and documentary, Anton captures candid and authentic moments, offering a glimpse into the world of music and its performers.
