If I could only use a single word to describe the video for Sydney producer, Chasm‘s, current release ‘Highs and Lows’, it would have to be smooth. In the latest installment from his third album, This Is How We Never Die, Chasm has created a cross continental collaboration featuring US rapper, Fashawn; Sydney based Solo and NZ’s David Dallas, each of whom feature in the video for the track.
‘Highs and Lows’ is an introspective track with depth, and the simplicity of the video allows you to become fully immersed in it without distraction. There are no crazy special effects in this video, nor is there an attempt to make it into a mini movie all of it’s own, which is so refreshing. Instead, the video is a clean and crisp glimpse into the world of the artists involved and into the emotions behind the lyrics.
The production on this video is exceptionally high quality. It is beautifully shot and feels personal and intimate, with a sense of hope. As a Sydney-sider, the inclusion of relatively distinct local footage adds a sense of familiarity and only serves to increase a personal connection with the track.
