Alex Anwandter Premieres New Music Video for “Locura”
- Chilean alt-pop singer-songwriter Alex Anwandter has dropped a new music video for “Locura”.
The song was released back in August from his upcoming fourth studio album "Latinoamericana", which is set to be released on October 12th.
The video was shot in Chile and directed by Alex Anwandter himself. He is known a film maker, who created "You'll Never Be Alone" in 2016.
“The video for ‘Locura’ is a visual analogy of the feeling I had when I wrote the song,” Alex Anwandter told Rolling Stone. “Watching the world burn, watching Trump all over the news 24/7, watching South America go crazy following fascist leaders, part of the world wanting to go back to a time when authoritarian men ruled and queer people and minorities were openly and explicitly oppressed.”
In the clip, he is watching as an audience that he performs the song by himself.
“It’s sometimes a bizarre feeling to ‘perform’ as an artist in a context like this one,” he continued. “In the video I’m looking at myself from the audience as I perform: the performer is distraught by what he sees, while I have violent fantasies from within the audience.”
