A standout from the producer’s latest 100% Silk LP gets a video treatment.
Octo Octa’s ‘His Kiss’ is a sunkissed house tune with touches of rave-facing breakbeats. Director Danny Lane has crafted a similarly sexy video for the song, and he explained his thinking via email:
“A male voice is repeating His Kiss over and over again. It is simple, but complexity can be masked by simplicity. The ideas in the song are beautiful. I didn’t have to think too much about the video. A kiss is iconic…and so is a flower…and so is dancing…and so are the mysteries of men and women.
Visually, black and white is very mysterious to me. You can add color to a video similarly with expressive characters. The ‘His Kiss’ video, to me, feels more like a short film written by Octo Octa and directed and photographed by me. It was fun. And Chris and Judy looked great and were great to work with.”
Watch the video below. ‘His Kiss’ appears on Octo Octa’s Between Two Selves double LP, out now on 100% Silk.
