NEWS: PETER SONIC dances on deserted streets, and dives into a freezing lake, in video for “mess around your room

PETER SONIC DANCES ON DESERTED STREETS, AND PLUNGES INTO A FREEZING 2°C BLUE LAKE
IN VIDEO FOR “mess around your room”
There’s a certain image we think of when we think of romance, this song is not that.

 

Avant garde provocateur Peter Sonic gives you the evocative new film clip for latest single “mess around your room”.

Captured by both the debonair and handsome Jesse Leaman of Leaman Films – who scoured the countryside for a body of water for Sonic to dive into – and shockingly talented Nicolas Stevens of Jaen Collective, the clip was created between a freezing morning swimming around Victoria’s Blue Waters, and then over pizza, wine and paint with friends.

On that night, Sonic says “We all drank wine, she painted and then Claire painted our dinner. The still life photograph is the result of living a creative life – the process is equally enchanting”

“mess around your room” – produced by Dave Hammer (JEFFE, Nicole Millar, Gideon Benson) – remains with you long after your first, second or tenth listen. Dark and delightful, gothic, modern and brimming with optimism, it’s this lingering duality that spurred the film clip; futile in its nature, divine in its execution – embracing the exuberant spontaneity of art, life, and of course, dancing.

The surprisingly uplifting new single “mess around your room” is about being there when it is not convenient, for either party. It’s about sticking around through the mess.

“mess around your room” is out now on all digital platforms.

Peter Sonic will be finishing his debut live shows in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne at The Newsagency in Sydney on August 3rd with special guest Ro.
