The talented duo that is Smoke Season cannot stop blowing my mind and this time they do so with the wonderful visuals for their track “Sweetest Thing”. They take a step towards something more than love with the visuals as they explore the different roads that our bodies and our hearts can take. They showcase a vision of blurred lines between the limits that society has set upon us and it is done in a way that is mesmerizing, inviting and personally even poetic. They joined forces with another amazing duo, HOLYCHILD and with their assistance they have created a music video worthy of being enjoyed over and over again as dance, smoke and music become one in it. Enjoy!
We believe that fluidity is the future. As people who embrace blurred lines between masculinity / femininity, sexual orientation and monogamy, we wanted the Sweetest Thing music video to be an exploration into all types of sexual fluidity. This video uses dance as a metaphor to reject traditional binaries and allow us to literally slide between hetero-normative and same-sex pairings while simultaneously challenging dated notions of masculinity and monogamy. We teamed up with HOLYCHILD to create the concept (with HOLYCHILD lead singer, Liz Nistico, directing, editing, producing and choreographing the entire thing) and brought in dancers Charles Han and Candice Fox to create this smokey, sweaty extravaganza.
