The 22-year old Austrian Indie darling, AVEC, has shared a stellar music video for her latest single ‘Under Water’ released via EarCandy Recordings. Taken from her newly released album Heaven / Hell (released 14 September) the music video has already seen massive success as the views soar in numbers each day.
It’s easy to understand why, as the video stars Runa Hansen in a dramatic, but sometimes difficult to watch journey through self-exploration and overcoming difficult hardships. Beautiful and sad at the same time, this might be one of the most gripping music videos to be released this year.
Commenting on the latest single, AVEC states, “I think the song ‘Under Water’ is the most honest one I’ve ever written so far. The line “breathing underwater“ perfectly describes the pain and the struggle of being honest with yourself and being honest with everybody else. It hurts, and you might hurt people by being honest, but it’s the only way to keep on going; to get through whatever you’re dealing with – be honest, stay honest and be true to yourself, otherwise those feelings and thoughts will eat up your mind!”
Speaking on the music video, she adds, “When I first saw the video for ‘Under Water’ – filled with so many emotions and despair, I got goosebumps all over my body, because it just moved me so much, I can’t even describe it. I love it, I love the whole idea of it and I absolutely love the scenes they shot underwater – she is such an amazing actress!”
