South African singer and songwriter, Shekhinah has unveiled the video of her song ‘Fixate.’
She wrote, performed and narrated the short film which explores themes such as resilience, nostalgia and rebirth.
The video was directed by Monde Gumede.
With images of plants, fire flames and songbook pages offsetting scenes with archery and tennis, the ‘Fixate Short Film’ artfully explores the notion of being a ‘team player‘ in both the artistic and athletic sense. Accompanying the overt crafting of imagery is the undertone of red hues that seeks to represent the burning of the past’s blissful moments.
“My new project “Trouble in Paradise” is a continuation of my first album “RoseGold” which spoke to blissful ignorance. The idea is that all that was RoseGold is now ablaze. Paradise is no longer the place it used to be and trouble has come. Red for me signifies the burning of Paradise,” shares Shekhinah.
With the teasing of upcoming single ‘Insecure’ closing out the short film in a shimmering spectacle; the narrative of the ‘Fixate Short Film’ promises to be expanded upon further.
