The Laois/Dublin/Lagos artist has just dropped a new video from his project ‘Eden’.
Caleb Kunle released a four-track EP entitled ‘Eden‘ last year, around the same time he won NME’s Emerging Artists Project. He’s now shared a new video from that project for the track ‘Seul’. In an interview with NME he explains that he wrote this track on “a sabbatical period living with my family in rural Ireland”.
“I had been pondering the theme of being alone yet not feeling the sadness from being alone. To me, the song is an anthem from self-love, a call to listening to your truth, be that to be alone for a while.
“The video [shot by Jess Newby-Vincent, Frankie Markot, Theo Tennant] idea came up whilst discussing with the creatives that put the video together, we choose to show a character in isolation, admiring visions of an Oasis, yet never being there.
“We went with surreal landscapes and simple techniques to convey the simple pleasures that can occur when alone and content.”
