Rob Ulitski - 28th May 2021

Loona Riia guides us through a looping series of portrait setups, in her mesmerising promo for Sipho's Bodies. 

Centered on vivid colour schemes and Esme Hill's punchy edit, the video sees Sipho surrounded by a rotating group of doppelgangers and background artists, in dazzling monochromatic sets. 

Packed full of texture and energy, the video is a promising introduction to the Birmingham-based artist and his fluid, genre-defying sound.

"Sipho had a bright colourful moodboard that created such a contrast with the lyrics of the track," explains Riia. "We were making Sipho's very first video ever, so it was fun to work together on creating the perfect mood, tone and imagery we we were after.

"I had played around with some chroma paint a couple months before and managed to convince Sipho to pour some over him."
