Surf Mesa and Madison Beer have unveiled the visual for their hit single, Carried Away.
Directed by Loris Russier, the visual takes its inspiration from the French phrase loin des yeux, près du coeur”, meaning "far from the eyes, close to the heart". Serving as a glimpse into what young love looks like throughout the isolation periods of the COVID-19 pandemic, cinematographer Andrea Cavazzi juxtaposes isolation and wistful longing with the quiet joy of togetherness.
20-year-old songwriter and producer Surf Mesa spent much of 2020 honing the escapist energy of the nostalgic electronic ballads he’s been working toward throughiut his musical career. The Seattle artist makes “music for good feels”, bringing a breath of fresh air throughout a trialing year. Last year saw the producer drop ily (I love you baby) featuring Emilee and Somewhere featuring Gus Dapperton. The tracls offer romance and refuge for tired minds, drenched in gossamer synth and fueled by insistent drums.
