African-Canadian artist lavi$h releases vibrant visuals for debut single 'sunset blvd'
Lavi$h - Sunset Blvd
Today, African-Canadian artist Lavi$h releases the music video for “Sunset Blvd.” Sunset Blvd is the debut single off Lavi$h’s upcoming EP and was released in September via Public Records Inc and Universal Music Canada.
Taking inspiration from the track’s title, the video was shot in Los Angeles and features all the aspirational hallmarks of a Californian lifestyle. From the sunset strip to the ocean, the ease of sunny LA provides the perfect backdrop for an upbeat track about a mental release.
Directed by Elliot Clancy Osberg (Anders, Roy Woods, Langston Francis) the video showcases Lavi$h’s infectious positive energy, he tells us “the song had a certain energy that was important to capture.”
In Lavi$h’s words: “Sunset Blvd starts energetically and continues to build. We wanted to capture the pace of the track visually and filming in California was the only way that made sense. The scenes are spliced together rapidly, day/night, beach/canyon, it’s all part dream apart reality. Capturing the feeling of being in a place where the possibilities are endless.”
Produced by Milano, Sunset Blvd is an upbeat track with bounce that effortlessly blends staples of hip-hop, rnb and pop. An introduction to his range of talent, Lavi$h is an artist on the verge of global success. Lavi$h is currently working on his second single due out later this year. Additional details to be announced at a later date.
