London-based alt-pop artist Ilja Alexander introduced the music video for “Someday” a few days ago via Clash Magazine. “Someday” is from Ilja’ forthcoming album, Nature,” slated to drop in late 2020, on London’s The Playground label.
Speaking to his evolving sound, Ilja told Robin Murray of Clash, “Two years ago, I realized I had always been greatly disconnected from my emotions and emotional concepts in general. Since then I have pushed myself to better connect to my emotions and as a result, my interests began to change, one by one, among them my newly acquired interests in jazz dance and musical theatre.”
Commenting on the enchanting blush of the visuals, Ilja explained to Clash Magazine, “I instructed the director of the music video to take me out my comfort zone in front of the camera, presenting the viewer with powerful emotions and movement, taking the viewer in my mind to dreams of time spent with a girl, interchanging with scenes of the real world where I’m alone at the streets, dreaming to meet my dream girl someday.”
Wonderfully wrought, “Someday” serves up cashmere washes of stylish alt-pop, glossed with silky savors, and the deliciously evocative tones of Ilja Alexander.
