Premiere: downtempo-pop trio GIVVEN share visual for ‘Losing Colours’
Cinematic, evocative, and plastered with dreamy blue hues, “Losing Colours” is perhaps pop trio GIVVEN’s strongest audiovisual outing to date.
The group is comprised of Toronto’s Jordan Haller, Berlin-based Adrian Held, who previously made up one half of duo Klangkarussell, and Vienna-based music engineer Nikodem Milewski, whose co-credits include electronic music producers Robin Schulz and Gryffin.
“Losing Colours” also serves as the titular track of the group’s upcoming audiovisual EP, to be released on March 24 by Bias Beach Records. Shot across the gorgeous landscapes of Iceland, moody single “Taking On Water,” first released on December 1, 2021, set the tone for the singles to follow.
“We shot the video for ‘Losing Colours’ with Paris-based dancers Aliashka and Goku Kepler on the famous black beach in the south of Iceland. It explores the concept of human connection and energy. Even if you lose someone and that person is not physically present anymore, the energy still remains,” director Rupert Höller tells Dancing Astronaut.
With a driving melody, delicate plucking, and echoing vocals, “Losing Colours” is a haunting, moving piece that promotes GIVVEN at their best.
