A month ago, we called Daniel Trakell‘s “So Long” the ultimate goodbye song, well, rightfully so. The Melbourne-based singer-songwriter is back, this time, with the video for “Paradise”. The song is the title-track from Paradise EP, which he released back in March.
Trakell injects an enchanting element to the visuals. With the song being a hauntingly melancholic, the video’ slowness goes uniformly with the song’s melody.
“The impending unearthly atmosphere and Trakell’s melancholic tone contradict the idyllic limbo he finds himself in. In homage to sci-fi films of the 80’s and 90’s, Daniel Trakell wanders alone in search of something more than the paradise that surrounds him. A symbolic and metaphorical journey about learning to submit to the timeline of life.” – Rainer Kelly, video director
