“A bittersweet song of secret loves and vulnerability, and further cements Harnett’s voice at the front of England’s R&B movement.”
British singer Sinéad Harnett has unveiled a new video for her latest single “Body,” while relatively simple conceptually the video aptly utilizes color to convey the intense roller coaster of emotions associated with a deeply passionate love affair.
Shot on film in London by director Johny Mourgue, the video features Harnett singing against a blank backdrop which changes from black to red, to blue to pink. Incorporating sensuous minimalistic choreography, Sinéad pairs up with dancer, Tega Alexander, playing the object of her desire, both of them moving their bodies in time with the slow-simmering bassline.
“as soon as I finished the song I knew the video had to be shot on film. Something about film is so nostalgic, and when I wrote ‘Body’ I was looking back at all my memories within the relationship I was leaving. I wanted to use color to help paint the different layers of feelings and emotions I was going through at the time. Some conflicting, some bitter and some sweet.”
With plenty of new music on the horizon, Sinéad Harnett plans to return to North American shores later this year.
