Misha, the project of multi-instrumentalist and songwriter J Chao with singer Ronit Granot, have premiered their new video for “Limelight” on FLOOD —watch it here. FLOOD says, “Just as the song weaves together woozy comedown R&B with digitized gamelan scales, the clip follows an intertwined couple as they try and fail to go about their night without one another.” “Limelight” is taken from Misha’s highly anticipated All We Will Become, out May 20 on TOMLAB.
“‘Limelight,’ the song, is about the feeling of longing and hope that happens between two kindred souls. And when we did the video, we were looking for that same feeling of romance and possibility.
So the music video is about two kindred souls looking for the other over one night in Chinatown, Brooklyn and Jackson Heights, Queens. We wanted for it to take place in the parts of New York that you don't usually see, and it's inspired by the movie Chung King Express by Wong Kar Wai (In the Mood for Love) and Before Midnight by Richard Linklater.
It’s created by a group of friends who shared the inspirations, including Ryan Decker of Good Look who has directed videos for Glen Hansard, Lee Fields and Arctic Monkeys, and Yara Travierso, who just debuted a piece at PS122.”
