With her stellar debut EP, Ticket To Anywhere, still simmering, April Maey shares the Disney styled animation video for the EP’s choicest track, Starry Night released earlier in March.
According to the soul train driver, “The video is about two young kids who try to save the moon by freezing time and putting the moon back where it belongs, in the sky“.
Almost perfectly, the video synthesizes the essence of the EP, a tale of the transcendence of love and life. It runs through the avatars of April and her lover sharing moments of playfulness and expressions of affection by a campfire. The purple backdrop which glimmers like April’s vocals does, inspired by Jaden Smith’s SYRE enhances a utopian feel, while portraying the desire for affection and the struggles involved in verifying its authenticity.
The visual detail rendered, positions the animated video amongst the best representations of love.
“I’ve been obsessed with stories, movies, and nature for as long as I can remember” asserts the alternative soul singer. “It was very important for me to have a storyline attached to ‘starry night’… I wanted to be unique and tell a story”.
