POET, ARTIST, DIRECTOR, SUMERA EXPLORES DARK PULSATING POP IN NEW SINGLE “F A I T H”

In February, Berlin-based singer-songwriter Sumera partnered with Don Diablo’s HEXAGON imprint to release “Animal,” the slow-burning first track in a three piece sonic story. With millions of streams and views on the video, the track was a new direction for the label and a striking collaboration for the pair. The project revolves around confronting the strength and fragility of desire, as well as the physical memory of someone’s presence. Now, she returns with the second track in this story – “F A i T H.”

A self-proclaimed, “Wild Feminist,” Sumera tackles the idea of what it means to be an empowered woman in the 21st Century. As a self-made woman, writing, producing and creatively overseeing her music, Sumera details the constant push and pull in the fight to liberate herself of “all that oppression and that guilt and that shame that historically silenced and executed [women].” All of these ideals are clearly brought together as she explores what it means to fully connect with another human being – on a purely sensual level – in the intimate, brooding, and delicate “F A i T H.”

The video for “Faith” was shot by, directed by, and stars Sumera herself. As a whole, “Faith” is about finding strength in making your vulnerability visible without succumbing to the idea that vulnerability equals weakness. While the video allows the viewer to see the intensity of Sumera’s physical experience, it also allows us to visualize the gap between that intensity and her partner’s detachment. It is impassioned and alluring, while simultaneously being intimate and exposing. “I am vulnerable. I am brutally soft. And I am powerful,” shares Sumera. “Without vulnerability, strength and independence lose every bit of their worth.”
