Swedish artist Sofia Härdig releases a new creative video for single ‘Illuminate’ from upcoming LP ‘Changing The Order’.
The lead single with deep glowing synths, slow-build guitar rhythms and echoing vocals, is a fitting addition to the 80’s-themed Drive soundtrack.
Lyrically the song explores a loneliness and an endless search, while the accompanying music video – featuring textural loops of illuminated streets and vignette close-ups on Sofia, adds to the song’s exploration of darkness.
The end of the video- perfectly matching the crescendo of positivity that makes an appearance with instrumental part of the song – shows the shots become day lit.
Having worked with major Swedish artists, as well with Yoshimi from Japanese noise-rockers Boredoms and the alternative indie band Free Kitten. Sofia’s experimental nature shines through with her new material that blends rock and electronic influences.
