"Little Darling" is a whimsical music video for a Sydney, Australia band called The Secret City. I don't know anything about the band, but the animation is fun and matches the music pretty well. An enjoyable little animation that obviously took a lot of work to put together.
Big Cookie Studios is a CG animation studio in Sydney, Australia. Oliver Morton-Evans, who worked with The Wiggles, heads the studio.
Australia, of course, has top-flight animators. Among other things, it was the location of some of Disney's animation operations. So, that we get this fabulous animation from Sydney is really no big surprise.

Set inside an automaton clock, Little Darling tells an enduring love story between two characters who are confined within the clock's mechanism. When the boy stumbles upon a
method to free himself, he must go on a dangerous adventure to save the one he loves...
