Watch: Harry Bryant // Orb

Stu Nettle
Swellnet Dispatch

Are our attention spans getting longer?

The online staple, a three minute banger released every second month has stretched into the extended play - 10, 15, even 20 minutes. Harry Bryant is the latest to hold onto his keepers and slow down the clip cycle.

'Orb' clocks in at 15 minutes, and when I saw its premiere at Thirroul last Thursday the audience could've sat through 45 minutes more.

Made by Dav Fox, 'Orb' tracks Haz through his trips in 2019.

Killer soundtrack too:
Om - State of Non Return
Neu! - Negativeland
Spacemen 3 - Let Me Down Gently
Erkki Kurreneimi - Sähkösoittimen Ääniä #4+#1
Bauhaus - In the flat field
The Uplifting Bell Ends - Poison Moth Kingdom

Agreed Sprout, it's as much about the wave as it is about the surfer.

Don't let the bastards grind you down

I hear you OHV, I normally struggle to watch 30 seconds.

But this one I watched twice and really enjoyed......

Really good mix of airs, tubes and some innovative, non-WSL type power turns.

the super8 footage and scary monster graphics was a total Dane rip-off and the only bummer.
