Today we are pleased to join forces with the great Abigail Ory for the release of her stunning visual for her latest single “Waves,” which captures the nostalgic and soulful nature of the video with its interpolation of somewhat psychedelic visuals with some nice animations that makes for a video that reminds to those of the late 90s and early 00s.
A hands-on artist in all facets, the official video was produced and edited by Ory. “Waves” was originally written years ago and re-visited with Ory’s mentor and esteemed songwriter, Donna Lewis. The song speaks of the temporality of interpersonal relationships and the acceptance of change & loss and was largely inspired by the book “Invention of Morel” by Adolfo Bioy Casares.
Ory commets “Arturo and I spoke about the mermaid as a siren, a lure in the figurative and literal sense. When our main character escapes the mermaid they are faced by yet another lure, a candy ring on a fishhook. With seemingly no other options, their boat is toppled and with a potentially not-so-good-natured siren lurking below, this piece of candy is very literally offering a sweet escape. But do they take the bait? We never see the conclusion. Meanwhile, we end the video with the wetsuited character (partly a nod to French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, and to an Irish folklore character that featured a type of mermaid-seal-fairy wearing a red cap) having reached dry land, looking back out over the water.“
