London native, Leo Kalyan, releases the video for ‘Daydream’; a stunning and an emotive track with an equally as mesmerising video.
The hypnotic stock motion visual was animated by Ruth Barrett and directed by Hazlett-Beard. It once again showcases Kalyan’s boundless ability to draw upon ‘close to the bone’ emotions and wrap them perfectly in an infectious soulful R&B pop sheen.
Speaking of the video Kalyan, described how “For the “Daydream” video, I wanted to bring my collage artworks to life. I design all my own song artwork so the colours and textures that I use are chosen to represent how the song feels to me. For this video, I wanted to take it a step further by making it move. Much like my last video there isn’t a specific storyline to follow. It’s more about a mood, a vibe, and an aesthetic. It’s about momentarily letting your mind wander into a different, slightly surreal world – just like a daydream.”
Leo’s four-track EP, ‘Silver Linings’, has been produced by friend and frequent collaborator XO and is out now.
