Video: Didirri – The Critic

It’s safe to say we’re fans of Australian singer songwriter Didirri here at York Calling. The Critic is the third of his tracks we’ve shared and there’s no sign of our love for his storytelling abating.

Didirri’s music is all about imagery and authentic emotion. The Critic is relatively upbeat compared to the last track of his I shared, Raw Stuff, but there is a common thread in that Didirri is a master of painting a picture with music. The Critic does this through animal metaphor, particularly in the chorus where he declares “my bark is sharper than my bite.”

The inventive video was partially shot during lockdown and you can check it out below.
