Anana Kaye, a Nashville based Indie Alt-Americana duo from The Republic of Georgia,brings us a new music video for their single “Blueberry Fireworks,” unpacking mental health through theatrical absurdism in a genre-bending four minutes. Watch here
Akin to twisting a kaleidoscope, Anana Kaye’s self directed music video for “Blueberry Fireworks” is nothing short of a Wes Anderson and Luis Buñuel love child. The video is set in modern day but features a woman seemingly “stuck” in the 1960s, played by spellbinding Rosemary Fossee. The plot illuminates a haunting dichotomy between perceived normalcy and mental instability as we see how she interacts with the world. With depth and storytelling similar to a short film, the tale Anana Kaye tells evokes compassion for those experiencing life with mental illness.
“Blueberry Fireworks” is the debut single from their upcoming album Detour, set for release in late spring 2019. Produced by Norwegian Grammy Nominee Brett Ryan Stewart at WireBird Productions, the single touches on subjects of alienation, depression, longing for real human connection, and feelings of dissatisfaction prevalent in modern western society. The accompanying music video further illuminates the seriousness and gravity bolstering the song.
Working with notable musicians David Olney, Freddie Stevenson, and Mike Scott (The Waterboys), Anana Kaye and her guitarist and husband, Irakli Gabriel, are here to make Art musically and visually. They morph beautifully daunting and deep lyrics into deliciously catchy folk and pop rock songs that later leave you pondering the meaning of life.
The music video for “Blueberry Fireworks” was produced, filmed, and directed by the band’s video production company Duende Vision in Nashville, TN, and styled by Rosemary Fossee.
