video premiere: Solar Year – Global Girlfriend
Montreal duo Solar Year teams up with director Allie Avital Tsypin to create one of the deepest / most beautiful videos of the year. The band says of the stunning visuals for transportive Waverly highlight “Global Girlfriend“:
“The music video for “Global Girlfriend” is essentially a series of “paintings” that explore sacred spaces, death, relaxation, and ideas of paradise.
It was the product of a series of conversations between us and the director Allie Tsypin. References included everything from Tarkovsky’s Stalker to spas, churches, research about the afterlife, Tilda Swinton fashion spreads, Mormon tabernacles, and 80s Scandinavian craft art. Ultimately we were interested in the connection between death and “relaxation”.”
