Video: Adria - Pull Me Under
Is the next Lorde this 18 year old girl from Perth?
(Almost) 18 year old Perth singer Adria has hit the ground running with the premiere video of the first single off her debut EP - Pull Me Under. The EP's taken Adria to Europe and back, where it got the golden touch from Lykki Li producer Viktor Balter-Lundin, and the man behind Lorde and Florence and the Machine, Matthew Wiggins.
The Pull Me Under clip, shot in black and white, is a sombre, sensual powerful couple of minutes of viewing, laden with dark shadows, water imagery, clever visual trickery and sensual close ups of the transfixing Adria, whose not a bad dancer, either. It was shot by Jason Eshraghian, a 20 year old Perth based filmmaker.
It's a strong and assured debut track: while Adria's voice, upon first listen isn't as big or billowing as say, Hannah Reid's from London Grammar, or Florence Welch's, there's a lot of BANKS-like potential in her cool and smoky timbre, which rises to the occasion each chorus. A hypnotic piece of alt-pop that's enough for us to want to keep a firm eye on this young lady.
Grab the single via iTUNES.
