Melbourne electronic duo SAATSUMA shares the music video Stay, directed and conceptualized by Dyllan Corbett and shot by collaborator Tom Chapman.
Stay explores the irrationality of desire and the process of losing yourself in a fight to obtain the unattainable. Director Dyllan Corbett describes his intentions and process for the music video:
“Following on from the previous release Isolate, I wanted to find a common ground thematically- carrying on this recurring theme in the lyrics of self-consciousness and reflection.
The aim was to strike a balance between the digital and analogue VHS effects. By degrading layers of the VHS tape and syncing glitches live to the beat, I think we were able to appropriate the zeitgeist of VHS but in a more nuanced way.”
Written and produced by Memphis Kelly and Cesar Rodrigues, Stay was mixed by Dream Kit (Declan Kelly), mastered by Lachlan Carrick and was premiered by Triple R and Ramona Mag.
The five-piece band will showcase their live show for The Push New Slang on July 7. In addition, SAATSUMA are curating an event at SPURS on July 9 which will include an exclusive first listen of the debut album, a full band live performance and guest DJ’s, as well as an art gallery space displaying selected artworks by Ajay Jennings.
