Today sees the official release of the music video of CAVIAR DREAMS, a collaboration between AL BAIRRE and PHFAT as part of the Xperia Mashlab - brought to you by 5FM and powered by Sony. CAVIAR DREAMS was released as a single to radio early July, and has been play listed nationwide to much acclaim.
Al Bairre and PHFat were voted by 5FM listeners as two artists they would like to see collaborate on a track. The listeners also had to send in theme ideas for the collaboration, of which the artists chose the theme ‘dreams’. Both artists then spent two weeks in studio to work on the song.
The video, which was shot in Cape Town, stars Julia from Al Bairre and is directed by Daniel Levi (who has also directed music videos for the likes of Interpol and Massive Attack).
“The title evoked a sort of dream feeling and then the image of the fire and the forest was just from the music.” - Daniel Levi.
"I have never been comfortable acting in front of a camera so I was a little hesitant to play the lead. Once we started shooting, Daniel and the rest of the crew were so great that I was able to put my self consciousness aside and just go for it. I am very happy I pushed myself because the final product looks great." - Julia Johnson, Al Bairre.
