[Video] Samaris - Wanted 2 Say
'Wanted 2 Say’, released on April 8, is the latest single to come from Icelandic trio Samaris, and is taken from their album 'Black Lights', due on June 10.
Ushered in on a mournful note and a gentle gasp before a d’n’b breakbeat kicks in, ‘Wanted 2 Say’ takes Jófríður’s breathy vocal - sung in English - and sets it against an effervescent arpeggiated note sequence.
The video directed by Thora Hilmars was shot on a cold winter's night on an abandoned military base in Iceland. Under the light of an Icelandic blood moon, something strange begins to happen to the local teenage girls. Explains Thora: "Since the earliest days of history, the moon is believed to have a powerful influence over human and animal behaviour in an almost supernatural way and in various biblical passages a blood moon was thought to be a bad omen. In this video I wanted to explore that and peek into mysterious situations around a few young girls on a night of red moon."
