Mystic hues linger throughout the video and create an otherworldly vibe as this film peers into imagination. The video for “Brighter,” has a dreamy, retro-sensual take into a girl’s fantasy realized by director, S-hekh Shem Hetep. Hetep has produced films for Sony Music and Moguldom Studios and aims to use filmmaking to inspire social change. The video features professional dancer, Julio, who is signed to Bloc Talent Agency and has worked with notable artists such as Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Janelle Monae and Katy Perry.
“Brighter,” the first single off of Oriel Poole’s debut EP, Sunday, was produced by Max Savage. While working on Sunday, Poole also collaborated with a number of prominent artists and musicians including electro-band, Lotus on their track “Anti-Gravity,” and downtempo producer Thriftworks’ song, “Someone.” She would go on to perform with Lotus at iconic venues like The Fonda in Los Angeles and Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver. Building on her successes and momentum so far, the release of Sunday is the emergence of Oriel as an independent solo artist.
