London-based artist Zoee has shared her new single & video “Evening Primrose“, which is taken from her debut album Flaw Flower, out on June 25th via Illegal Data.
Zoee offered an insight into the track, saying, “This a nighttime song, with metaphors of flowers blooming in the dark and the healing power of the Evening Primrose flower. It’s also about throwing up in a Carhartt bag on a night train after being dumped and the mania that ensues.”
On the visuals, Zoee said: “The video is directed by Daniele d’Ingeo who always brings my lyrics to life with such thoughtful and playful ideas. Dani had dressed up for a Zoom party during lockdown, which then inspired the cardboard cut-out concept for the video. We enlisted painter Coralie Burke to create these surreal nighttime scenes of London – a rat in the headlights, a chorus of stoned, opera singing evening primrose flowers, some terrified moths. It feels so fulfilling to collaborate with other artists who tune-in to the concept but also add their own spin on the world you create in a song.”
Director Daniele d’Ingeo added, “I find it very interesting to explore the relationship between digital art and the craft that inspires it. The video is influenced by both contemporary instagram filters and the cutouts used in traditional theatre sets – the original form.”
