Amber Olivier Fights Familiarity & Nostalgia in “One Unread”

Amber Olivier Fights Familiarity & Nostalgia in “One Unread”

Amber Olivier dropped an honest, reminiscent self-titled EP told through a diaristic lens in early March 2018. Today, she’s released her first music video for “One Unread” (produced by Sonder) directed by Pulse Films’ Savannah Setten.

Setten captures Olivier’s melancholic emotions in a timely manner. The video, set in Morocco showcases how love can make you unrecognizable to yourself when all is said and done. Although Amber hasn’t forgotten everything just yet, she shows us the importance of remaining triumphant in the eyes of temptation.

If you haven’t listened to her EP yet, listen to it below. Follow Amber & Savannah on social media @AmberOlivier & @SavannahSetten. Check out more of Savannah’s work @PulseFilms.

Eye Surface Intensifies The High of Trevor Daniel’s “Youth”

Eye Surface Intensifies The High of Trevor Daniel’s “Youth”

Electronic music has the ability to intensify Pop’s deepest love songs. Hailing from the coastal city of Nador, Eye Surface has been creating engaging electronic music with cover art to match since 2011. This North Moroccan multidisciplinary artist and music producer takes his talents and upgrades Houston crooner Trevor Daniel’s druggy single “Youth”.

Trevor Daniel’s original version tells a tale of euphoric intimacy being exchanged in one moment. Emotions become heightened as Eye Surface takes listeners on a journey through “an infinite-dimensional space of decibels” by morphing Daniel’s vocals into distant echoes yearning to be felt. Trevor makes the best of his moments echoing:

“Nights like this

Burn, burn, burn

Let loose

Take a bite of this fruit”.

His production brings added depth with crashing drums, slashing synths, coupled with luminous basslines and bold sequencing. As original vocals weave near the outro, Eye Surface develops an intense trance similar to an out-of-body experience. His “Youth” reconstruction is equally satisfying and engaging introduction to his artistry.

In the words of Eye Surface: “May the EYE be with you”.
