12 days ago
Durban-born singer, songwriter Shekhinah has shared the visuals for her latest single 'Fixate' featuring Bey T. Aptly released on Valentine's day, the short film has already amassed thousands of views on the talented singer's YouTube channel.
Written, performed and narrated by Shekhinah, the 'Fixate Short Film' visuals were directed by Monde Gumede, who filled the crisp visuals with poignant storytelling. Much like Shekhinah's highly-anticipated sophomore albumTrouble In Paradise; the short film explores themes such as resilience, nostalgia and rebirth.
With images of plants, fire flames and songbook pages offsetting scenes with archery and tennis, the'Fixate Short Film' artfully explores the notion of being a 'team player' in both the artistic and athletic sense. Accompanying the overt crafting of imagery is the undertone of red hues that seeks to represent the burning of the past's blissful moments. "My new project "Trouble in Paradise" is a continuation of my first album "RoseGold" which spoke to blissful ignorance. The idea is that all that was RoseGold is now ablaze. Paradise is no longer the place it used to be and trouble has come. Red for me signifies the burning of Paradise," Shekhinah shares.
Matching attention to detail with regards to image, renowned stylist Boogy Maboi dressed her subjects - including Barbie Jackson, Nkuley Masemola, Bandile Koketso Mbuli and Tamara Moeng - in theme-enhancing attire. From the floral, bedazzled and athletic looks this short film portrays, the ethereal spirit of the track is maintained with a deft touch. With the teasing of the upcoming single 'Insecure' closing out the short film in a shimmering spectacle; the narrative of the 'Fixate Short Film' promises to be expanded upon further.
