Video Premiere: Danika Smith – 'Suit of Armour'

Monday, September 9, 2019

We're thrilled to today bring you the video for Danika Smith's captivating debut single 'Suit of Armour'. The track's accompanying visuals were directed by Eric Sayaman. The release of the video comes before her upcoming co-headlining show with Harmony Byrne this Saturday (September 14th) and her appearance at Strawberry Fields festival at the end of November.

Finding itself somewhere between folk and soul, 'Suit of Armour' is a track about reservations, internal walls, as well as an underlying sense of hope that things will become easier. For the video, they decided to use a real suit of armour, which was inspired by a late-night brainstorming session with her friend and fellow musician Hannah Macklin.

On the video, Eric Sayaman said, "Filming outside in Melbourne with time restrictions is always a roll of the dice. Fortunately, when the weather provided, the performances came out easily. The strength and relevance of the concept was as much to thank as the individual input from each of the skeleton crew and performers. The suit looked a shit tonne better on the screen then it looked on the website, which alleviated stress when film day arrived."
