It’s evident from previous music videos that the North London dark soul singer/songwriter Basheba has a flair for creating engaging and moving visuals. “Platinum & Gold” is no exception as the beautifully shot video (directed by Vasilisa Forbes with art direction from Luke Nugent) is the perfect foil for her haunting vocal delivery and sparse production courtesy of XVR BLK.
With one listen, you’ll be entranced by the soothing production and Basheba’s hypnotic melody. The stunning visual is shimmering with opulence, just like the title suggests.
“The video to ‘Platinum & Gold’ was inspired by the idea of transformation, with myself being the subject, like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly,” Basheba explains. “We wanted to exude luxury. With the rich colors and textures of the clothes and the makeup. The video is simple but captivating thanks to Vasillisa Forbes and Luke Nugent’s creative collaboration.”
Beautiful song and video! Watch below:
“Platinum & Gold” is the lead track taken from her latest EP Axiom Pt. 2 which is out now on iTunes and Spotify (via her own label Y.O.B Records) which is the second installment of the Axiom EP which dropped in April 2016.
