Lucinda Releases New Single And Video Titled, 'Weerloos'

By / Off The Press / Tuesday, 14 July 2020 09:20

Popular Afrikaans singer Lucinda released her brand new, catchy single 'Weerloos' on Tuesday, July 14th. Lucinda, who is also well-known as a talented visual artist, created and directed a joyful animation story for the accompanying video of the track.

When conceptualizing the video, Lucinda felt that she would like to create a story that will make people smile. “I want the viewer to drift away into a feelgood magical little story.” The video is about a dialogue between two characters who are looking at each other with tiny torchlights – as if they are exploring deeper into each other`s inner landscapes. Lucinda says that the making of the video was a lot of fun, but she also had to be incredibly patient with the process: “Firstly I made the characters from paper. I built an instant ‘studio’ by placing my coffee table on top of another bigger one. This created the feeling of a stage for the story to play out on. I shot the video with an app on my phone. The video consists of 1601 photos: with each frame, I moved the characters with a couple of millimetres for hours on end, until the video played out in proper movements. I am so happy with the result. It is exactly as I imagined it.”

Lucinda wrote the lyrics and melody for “Weerloos” after receiving the music for the track from Bouwer Bosch. It was then recorded at Bouwer`s studio and mixed and mastered by the talented Peach von Pletzen. Lucinda says that it is always special to work with Bouwer Bosch. “We released an EP titled, Waar die see die kus omhels, together in 2019. I have learnt a lot from him over the past few years.”

'Weerloos' thematically looks at how hard it can be for people to get to know each other. "Weerloos" means “Vulnerable.” One must be brave to open up to be known. The chorus personifies various characters that one encounters every day. People are different but there is a place of belonging for everyone.
