Happy New Music Friday! Today we have something really special for you. The new music video for ‘Eyes Wide Open’ from Los Angeles music artist, ARCANE! Directed and edited by NAKID founder & cinematographer, DUSTIN HOLLYWOOD.
“The story is about letting the past die and rebirth into the new”, says center stage lead for Arcane, Amanda Fleming.
A new artist on the scene in LA, she is taking her time and making sure every detail of every song is perfect. Not to mention the aesthetic and creative direction she wants to go in, which is where photographer Dustin Hollywood comes in. Known for his work with Steve Aoki, Dim Mak, Pretty Lights Music, Vice, Thump, Salacious Sound and numerous other artists and festivals as a music photographer, he is better known now for his founding of this media brand and magazine, NAKID. Now venturing into cinematography and film, he has come back to his roots with music and putting his own stamp on it creatively.
“I want to always be evolving as a creative and person, film is a natural and inevitable step in my storytelling as an artist and that connection to music I have really comes out in the way I see music videos moving into the future, as more of a featurette short story film narrated and tracked to the artists themselves.” – Dustin Hollywood
Arcane, with it’s hard hitting vocal melodies and thrashing guitar rhythms, it’s everything you would want in a pop-punk/rock n’ roll resurgence. We for one can’t wait to see what they both do next! Keep an eye out for Arcane around Los Angeles as she pushes into the scene, she is definitely an artist to watch!
