LISTEN TO DEBUT ALBUM HUMOR HERE
Toronto, ON – April 29, 2021 – Today, innovative electro-pop, Canadian artist, Russell Louder, releases the official video for powerful lead single, Home, off their debut album, Humor (February 2021). Directed by Bobby Leon, the video was filmed outdoors just outside of Montreal, near Bobby’s family cottage – a stunning and scenic backdrop for the video. Viewers will find themselves entranced by the way the music and video perfectly match and complement each other. Once again, Russell takes people on journey through a visual and musical performance – this time sharing their idea of “Home.” Watch the full video here.
Russell shares, “When Bobby and I discussed the video in the early plotting stages, it became really apparent that we both wanted to create something in liminal space – sort of between day and night, depicting an ambiguous journey through the countryside. 'Home' is an enigmatic idea to me – it's something I carry with me, yet something I spend my whole life trying to find.”
The video is a true work of art and beauty, carefully thought out and crafted by Russell and Bobby. It was clear upon meeting they both had similar visions for the video, making for an instant connection creatively.
“Conceptually, Bobby and I met for the first time and instantly clicked. It was super clear that we spoke the same artistic language and worked in a similar way,” Russell continues. “We played catch with a few aesthetic references (mostly design work) and when we felt we had a strong core, Bobby and I started thinking wardrobe. Lathe, the stylist for the video brought forward this full-on reflective outfit that became the aesthetic anchor of the concept. The video was filmed outside at Bobby's family cottage outside of Montreal. We kept the crew super small (to keep everything as covid-safe as possible).”
Embark on new journey with Russell and follow them “Home”.
