SYLO NOZRA IS CLEARED FOR TAKE OFF
IN NEW VIDEO FOR “SPIRITS”
VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE RELEASED EVERYWHERE TODAY
Toronto, ON – (April 15, 2021) – Korean-Canadian R&B singer-songwriter Sylo Nozra, today delivers a video for his new track “Spirits.” The video is set in something of a bit of a rare scene these days – a commercial airplane. Sylo is the pilot not paying attention to the aircraft, metaphorically being an example of the “spirits” (alcohol) kicking in and running on autopilot. Directed and edited by Sylo’s creative partner, Martin Klapperbein, it was shot mostly at a uFly Simulator in Mississauga, ON – watch here now.
“Spirits” is a future-funk, bass driven sound on a very personal song. The lyrics are strong and vexed, about being done with a past lover, and the difficulty in trying to let go. Written and produced by Sylo and long-time collaborator, Toronto musician Goldchain, as well as Leo Dessi, the track taps into the angry, emotional experiences of ending a relationship.
“We made the demo for Spirits at a snowy cottage when there was nothing to do except make music. This is what came out. It’s about making blurry decisions when you’re intoxicated, thinking about the past,” said Sylo about the song.
