purpl Drops New Music Video for “Trippin”
British alt-pop singer-songwriter purpl has dropped a new music video for “Trippin” directed by Connor Baskerville.
The song was released on January 26, 2024 from her upcoming sophomore EP.
purpl explained about the video, “2 weeks before trippin was released we decided we wanted to make a music video. It was a big ask considering the time constraints and the very minimal budget, but a part of me always likes the challenge. We got Connor Baskerville (DOP) on board and walked around Bristol discussing ideas and locations - the premise of the video is me taking a tab of LSD and going on an adventure through Bristol. The teddy seen at the start of the video is a constant throughout and guides me through my trip. We wanted to make the editing process as easy as possible so Connor incorporated some really cool kaleidoscope lenses on the camera and also got a 360 camera involved. We also had the help of Swindon college, allowing us to use there green screen and, after our original editor fell through, Sam Storey - a teacher at the college - saved the day and managed to edit the video for us within days of the release. Despite the freezing cold temperatures and the stress involved, we are all very proud of how it turned out.”
- The track was written by James Alexander Christos Hajigeorgiou and Rebekah Sarah Power. Produced by James Haj and Alex Channelle.
purpl said of the inspiration behind the single, “I wrote Trippin’ a few years ago after my first experience with psychedelics. I went into the studio with my friend Jamie and just said let's do something really random, so he picked a synth sound and played the weirdest chord progression I've ever heard, and we went with it. We wanted to capture the essence of a really good trip and how amazing it can make you feel afterwards.”
