WL//WH Video Of The Day: GRAZER “Fever Dream”

Video Of The Day Grazer

Grazer is the joint musical venture of four Melbourne artists whose backgrounds in painting, photography and poetry emulate their eclectic sound inspired by the dreaminess of 80s Indie-Pop and the catharsis of 90s Grunge and Shoegaze.

The band, fresh from releasing their debut 5-track Self/Titled EP, have also shared the video for the song “Fever Dream”, taken from their previous first single.

Nostalgic poignant guitar melodies sparkle and shimmer unremittingly amidst deep throbbing bassline and steady hypnotic snare beats, as airy layered male and female vocals breathlessly expand in atmospheric harmonies and carefree chorus to elicit feelings of soothing relaxation and friendly intimacy.

A whirlwind romance on the cusp of falling in love spends long inebriated nights opening wine and hearts to the endless possibilities of love and friendship.

An eye-opening video, created by Dan de Sousa, fuses a red humid haze around a nervous foot tapping silhouette, lost in the regenerative fires of a Phoenix’s rebirth wherein lies a strong, sensual woman waiting to emerge. Shadow tracing overlays draw dimensions inward toward the microscopic fibres of existence while quick zoom camera action captures the outward confidence of rare beauty. At first glance, the last scene seems to be a sign of the time’s Covid19 reference, but pleasantly we find it is a nod to the surrealistic Magritte’s “The Lovers”, representing an anonymous moment of passion and things to come.
