South African artist Dasychira has shared a mesmerizing video for their Malibu-featuring single ‘Swirl’, taken from 2019’s xDream. Watch the Guille Santos-directed visual below.
“The video for Swirl came together when I arrived in LA after a month-long Asia tour with only hours to recover in New York,” Dasychira explained for The FADER. “Reality was virtually impossible to grasp, and before I knew it I was on my way to another world. I felt completely spellbound… We shot scenes in Pasadena, Downtown LA, Gui’s Vine St. apartment and El Matador Beach in Malibu. It was a blessing to work with a crew who imbued this spirit of magic and optimism, and shooting the video was like an opportunity to repaint childhood the way I had wanted.”
They added: “By the end of the shoot it felt like this cathartic rebirth of who I was, after falling “dead” in the scene under the giant rock at El Matador we wrapped, but then I revived and walked in green heels into the ocean and sunlight. We continued shooting and Gui kept directing me to “follow the light,” and in that moment it felt like I had uncovered a world of limitless possibility, emanating from my internal conscience.”
