VIDEO UPDATE: ANITA LESTER Earthly Desire
by Walter Price
VIDEO UPDATE: It’s been a short spell since my review of Anita Lester’s extraordinary return single “Earthly Desire”. This is now and just recently the mind-expanding visuals, directed by Eliya Cohen, have been released. The music video is a journey into the ethereal surreal. Sewn together green screen images flash behind Lester and the mix of otherworldly beauty, earthly dangers (if you will), emotive dance, and manipulation of light make for a great hand-in-glove result. You can re-read my review and see the new visuals for “Earthly Desire”, below.
Multi-faceted Australian artist Anita Lester returns with a new celestial single “Earthly Desire”. Meticulously produced by renowned composer/performer Gideon Preiss and landing someplace between Pink Floyd and Kate Bush, this vast track delves into the human experience of “unexpectedly falling in love.”
In a sea of familiar vibed indie pop offerings, Lester & Co. have crafted an indelibly beautiful song, unlike almost anything you’ve recently heard that’ll instantly find its way onto your favorite enchanting playlist, if not populate many soundtracks in the future. Speaking of films, there is a music video, crafted by Eliya Cohen, on the way, so follow the links below for updates.
Here at the GTC, you can stream Lester’s latest masterclass in song-making.
