To celebrate, Shamir has also shared his video for ‘Darker.’ ‘Darker’ is a change of pace from his bouncy singles ‘On The Regular‘ and ‘Call It Off,’ and showcases the Las Vegas native’s more spiritual side: “It doesn’t get darker, unless you expect it to.” In the music video, Shamir is alone in the Joshua Tree desert, singing as night magically turns into day into night again. Anthony Sylvester, who directed the video, used high-flying drones to film the entire performance.

Our pal Jeremy Neale has shared his brand new vid for ‘Hold On Together’ with the help of Fasterlouder.
Jeremy spoke about the video and said why wanted to create an awkward clip. “I saw this amazing video of Mireille Matthieu and Patrick Duffy performing their song “Together We’re Strong” on an 80s variety show and it was just so incredibly awkward that I wanted us to have a go at something similar. I sent the example to the director Jennifer Embelton and she sent mentioned framing it from a film crews’ perspective ie. “I’ve Told Every Little Star” from Mulholland Drive.”
“After a bunch of excited brainstorming and Jen being a total ace director, here’s what we ended up with. You can’t even tell I’d dislocated my knee the day before and had to stand on one leg for most of the shots. That’s the magic of cinema y’see. I hope you enjoy it!”
Watch the video below.
The track is out now via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records and you can grab it on iTunes or listen to the banger on all good streaming services.
