Expertly directed by Mário Melo Costa, this stunning cinematic music video for ‘Mother of Sun’ is the latest offering from British singer-songwriter and producer, Chantitown. Taken from her debut EP Cause and the Cure (released 17 July 2018), ‘Mother of Sun’ proves yet again that it is an independent release not to be missed.
Dark and brooding, the video follows Chantitown on a secluded beach following a little girl (a younger self perhaps?) as they make their way through the waves and the surrounding nature. Dressed in a beautiful dark gown, she wades in the water along the rocky shore, looking towards the horizon as if waiting for someone to return.
‘Mother of Sun’ will keep you fixed to the screen as each shot seems to be more beautiful and cinematic than the last. Don’t expect any bright colours here, as the colour grade beautifully compliments the siren-like vocal work and will make you reflect on your own experiences, much like the gloom on the beach sand.
‘Mother of Sun’ deals with the longing of a loved one since gone, but lifts you up to remind you that you should never forget the love you’ve experienced.
On the latest single, Chantitown comments: “I have learnt those we love never go away even if they are no longer with us. They are there, walking beside us. No matter how dark life may get, the sun is going to rise. It never ceases to amaze me its power to heal and shine light. I wanted to capture this power, this atmosphere by using drums, percussion, guitar and my voice in the hope this piece would translate to something larger than life, something people could really connect with.”
