Featuring Reevah's friends, family and fellow artists.
Northern Irish talent has joined forces on the music video for Derry-based artist Reevah's new single, 'You Said Tell Me'.
The track has a light-hearted, conversational feel, which the singer wanted to utilise within the lockdown-inspired video as well - enlisting her family and friends for the role.
Tipped as 'Hot for 2020' by Hot Press Magazine, Reevah (real name Aoife Boyle) is already in the midst of her busiest year yet.
“We initially had other ideas for the video before the current situation prevented us from our plans," the indie-folk singer said.
"However, we thought we would take this opportunity to create something that would connect people and lift everyone's spirits together!"
"We really wanted to capture lockdown in a fun way for this video, as well as family, friends and the Reevah band we have been recruiting various musicians to be involved," the musician added.
"We asked people to video themselves dancing, singing, miming, dressing up or acting out along to the track in their homes that reflected how they’ve been feeling through lockdown."
Edited by Graham Maree, the 'You Said Tell Me' video features contributions from the Reevah band, Ciaran Lavery, Cormac Neeson, Conor Scott, Brand New Friend, Roe, Gemma Bradley, Arvo Party, Alice LA, Sugarwolf, Cherym, Waldorf and Canon, Laytha,Rebekah Fitch, Katie Richardson (Hex Hue), Travi the Native, Vokxen and Joel Harkin.
"It was great to see how everyone individually reacted, not only to the song but how they’ve interpreted isolation too," Reevah said.
"While we’ve all been isolated during the pandemic, we’ve shared a universal experience and I wanted that to be reflected in the video and I hope it’s one that everyone can take a little bit of happiness from."
Reevah's acclaimed debut EP ‘Hummingbird’ was self-released in June 2018, and her latest EP A Different Light dropped on April 24, 2020. The songsmith has supported acts such SOAK, Wyvern Lingo and Lisa Hannigan over the last couple of years, so it's no surprise that these influences can be felt in Reevah's own music.
