Hannah Georgas is sharing the video for her new single ‘Evelyn’, the latest to be lifted from her critically acclaimed album “For Evelyn”, produced by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh.
Speaking about the treatment – filmed at Toronto’s TIFF Lightbox, home to the Toronto International Film Festival – director Sammy Rawal says; “I kept envisioning that specific rooftop location of the TIFF Lightbox in my head. I loved how graphic and unconventional it was…perched up on top of the city. I knew it would be a perfect visual balance for the type of performance video I imagined. It’s minimal design and neutral grey colour would offset the beat-driven edit, dance sequences, and Hannah’s wardrobe perfectly. I really wanted to play with pattern, repetition, looping, and scale with this video. For me, it almost feels like this army of Hannah clones assembling high above the city in the clouds, and marching confidently forward across an urban landscape.”
Best Of May 2016
Looking back on the month of May, the blog looks a little thinner than usual, definitely because I’ve been bad making time for the blog because of a new job. Could also be a slower time for new tunes too, who knows. Either way, these playlists still have some gems, just expect a shorter playlist than usual.
Check out new music from Hannah Georgas, Holy Fuck, Prides, Monogem along with IMF newcomers Carmody and Seramic.
