Australian singer NEAV is gearing up to release her new single, Silence Song. If you can’t wait to give the track a spin, listen to the song right here on MILKY before its release!
Directed, filmed and edited by Daniel Sabouné, the intimate visual captures the empowering themes of the track, using a birdcage to represent breaking free and taking control. Speaking of the visual, the singer shares: “The video was super fun to shoot. The birdcage idea for the video popped into my head as I listened to the final master of the song. I think it fits well with the themes in the song. It is a wonderfully weird experience to finally see my odd visions come to life”.
NEAV scored the opportunity to work with Sabouné after winning the Songwriting Prize 2020, a national songwriting competition run by Listen Up Music, an award-winning mental health music charity. “Neav came to me with a beautiful presentation on what she was wanting to achieve and together we brought her vision to life in a way that we feel respectfully complimented her lyricism and sound. In instances of knowledge, we learn truths or information that encourage a broader perspective that make us feel like we’ve been living in a cage all this time. To develop into that perspective gives us a new step forward in freedom, until such a time the cycle repeats. But nonetheless, like a bird in a cage, we may not be aware of our greatest potential or our habitual purpose – if we remain silent.” Sabouné shares.
