Vancouver alternative R&B artist Sophia Danai released her debut LP, Love Royale, this past March. Above you can find the music video premiere for her track, “Bitter,” featuring fellow Vancouver artist BREVNER. The video is stark, thematically heavy, and serves as an ominous backdrop for Sophia’s soulful vocals. Filmed in black and white, the viewer watches as emotional and physical realities find commonality, as saccharine revenge becomes actualized. This is a personal narrative, of trust and betrayal, of nostalgia and retribution.
Read a statement from Sophia about “Bitter”:
“I wanted to explore and talk honestly about the unresolved feelings at the end of a toxic relationship; hurt, longing, thoughts of revenge. The end of my relationship was one of the hardest times in my life, but one of the most illuminating. I think it’s important to let yourself go through the whole process, and to feel what you need to feel, without judging yourself.”
