Tsar B debuts her self-directed video for “Swim”, the latest single taken off her recently released four-track debut EP, Tsar B. She will play her first ever London show at The Waiting Room, Stoke Newington on Monday, 17 October. Tickets are now available, here.
“Swim” opens with deep horn, with airy, almost whispered, vocals. It becomes sparse, vocals flowing above intermittent pounds of bass drum. Moody, it is fair to say, is the operative word in this one. A very layered effort, even interesting when stripped back.
The video is about a model whom the last place he wants to be is at a photoshoot. When he gets cold feet the photographer sees his lifeblood fading into the distance. There is a fight prior, but the model evades the clutches of the photographer, eventually via motorcycle.
