video premiere: Amber Arcades – Turning Light
Dutch artist (and human rights legal advocate) Annelotte de Graaf -- aka Amber Arcades -- shares the Jeroen van der Poel-directed video for the driving, swirling "Turning Light", a blissful Stereolab-influenced gem from her beautiful new record Fading Lines. de Graaf explains the concept behind the song's dream-like visuals:
"The song is about time, continuity and the magic in that; about being the protagonist in your own story while simultaneously being a supporting player in the lives of everyone around you and about how those roles and lines intertwine. The video captures these sentiments in a continuing movement (a.k.a. the most basic dance I could think of - and probably the only one I am capable of tbf) that continues uninterrupted throughout the video, while locations and perspectives change and boundaries between moments fade, being projected over one another."
Amber Arcades' Fading Lines is out now on Heavenly Recordings.
