Dana Gavanski has unveiled a new single, ‘I Kiss the Night’, lifted from her upcoming second LP When It Comes. “It’s an ode to the night, learning to lean into its magic and the spookiness of solitude in a winter storm,” Gavanski commented in a press release. The track comes alongside a Gaia Alari-directed video comprised of 1,700 hand-drawn frames. Check it out below.
“The nocturnal and lulling atmospheres evoked by Dana’s song, had me design a video treatment that aims to represent a dreamscape, or, more precisely, the moment of drowsiness happening right before falling asleep,” Alari explained. “By entering the door of the liminal space between awake and asleep, the character erases the external world and enters within her brain, experiencing a maze made of layered visions, distorted perception of self, time and space, intrusive thoughts that range from playful-bizarre-uncanny sequences to reassuring memories, in the attempt to fall asleep and finally shut the door.”
