Laurel Canyon-based chanteuse, Shanee Pink, describes several songs on her upcoming EP, Spreading In The Light, as a recreation of the sensation of “being submerged in a womb under water, hearing the thump of life softly but firmly beating.” Appropriately, the title track’s Alfredo Lopez-directed visual counterpart conveys just that, along with other dreamlike images. Watch PureVolume’s exclusive video premiere above.
“When you fall in love with someone, to me it always feels like you fall into a bubble — there’s no one else around,” Pink eloquently explains. “You’re submerged in this warm feeling, almost like a warm blanket. I wanted to convey that with this video, and so chose a dinner party surrounded by friends, where the lovers are totally not present except in their feelings for each other. The underwater scenes are a juxtaposition or a metaphor for how I really feel when I fall in love — just floating under water with this warm light on me, unable to hear anything but my own heartbeat.”
This surrealism complements the song’s languid, dream-pop sound and works as a magnificent introduction to the singer’s new EP. The “Spreading The Light” single drops today, and the EP is set for a March 25 release. "Spreading In The Light" is available to purchase now via Bandcamp.
