Premiere: Ani Lou – 'Ascend'

Friday, June 2, 2017

Tasmanian singer-songwriter Ani Lou today shares the video for her single 'Ascend'. 

Directed by Jess Quinnell and Kate Southorn, the video works harmoniously with the track to portray the raw emotions embedded within its words. 'Ascend' is about the challenges and difficult times she has experienced and her quest to seek comfort with others who are going through tough times also. In a statement, she says "like many people, music is my antidote and method for self-soothing".

She uses the fluidity of water to channel feelings of renewal and transformation. Though the video features stunning scenes on land, it's the use of the ocean that evokes the most evocative emotions. 

'Ascend' is set to feature on her debut EP Eralda, which is due for release this month.
