Following its impressive release and great reception last month, Swedish-Gambian singer Luana Kiara has released a poignant video for her spectacular debut single “Trigger“.
The song in itself was a powerful one. It’s a dark, rumbling, R&B-tinged piece which was characterized by Luana’s energy and attitude. She endeavoured to share the clear message that you can never truly know the daily struggles other people face. And with this video, she intends to double-back on her sentiments.
With the help of director Florian Dezfoulian and Hannes Lemberg‘s choreography, she shines a light on the issue of domestic abuse. Through interpretive dance, she puts herself in the shoes of the victim of an abusive relationship, as her romance begins to escalate into violence.
“Trigger” follows Luana’s collaboration with Scandinavian production and DJ duo Tungevaag & Raaban last year. Her vocal efforts on their smash hit “Bad Boy“, helped clock up over 14 million streams on Spotify alone.
Now stepping to the forefront with her debut single, Luana Kiara is proving herself to already be an important name on the Swedish music scene. She is a strong female figurehead and set to take the world by storm.
