London Dancehall R&B artist Taliwhoah reveals her vulnerable side in these laid-back Sweetest Escape visuals. The video, directed by Taliwhoah and Director 411, and shot by Global Before Local, captures the heat of summer in Barcelona, where it was filmed, with use of warm tones. In some scenes you can feel the heavy, humid air of a Spanish Summer on your body and cold tiled flooring under bare feet, while Tali showcases effortless style in eclectic outfits throughout. The directors capture a picture of vulnerability so effortlessly with the use of wide-shots, beautiful cut scenes of high ceilinged rooms and stylistic interior architecture.
The Sweetest Escape video and track are both powerfully optimistic, and while they look back to an R&B heyday, Taliwhoah has crafted something entirely of her own, refined by a canny approach to lyricism and unbridled intimacy.
