This week’s Local Eye is from Auckland-based vocalist Ladi6 with her colourful video for new single ‘Diagonals‘.
The song is a bouncy, soulful celebration of accepting yourself, quirks and all, created by the combined talents of Tamati, Parks, Brandon Haru and Julien Dyne, who also just dropped his killer solo album Teal.
The cartoony video is a collaborative creation directed by Thievery Studio’s Garth Barger, animated by Robert Wallace (Parallel Teeth), and features dance duo The Sixers.
‘Diagonals’ is the first of a series of three singles that will lead up to her fourth full-length album set to be released in September next year. Ladi6 is currently on an international tour with Fat Freddy’s Drop, and will back in New Zealand this summer to play at Wondergarden this NYE.
Local Eyes is a weekly segment on BaseFM focusing on New Zealand Music videos.
