Nilüfer Yanya raves on in the video for ‘The Florist’

It’s about “chasing a high to fill the dark lonely void within.”

Recently, London singer-songwriter Nilüfer Yanya unveiled the follow up to her acclaimed EP ‘Small Crimes,’ ‘The Florist.’

It’s one of Nilüfer’s most urgent tracks to date, built on sharp yet soulful guitars and, of course, her own vocals and knack for songwriting. The new video, directed by Molly Daniel and Patrick Chamberlain, depicts a scenario where people are “essentially chasing a high to fill the dark lonely void within,” as Nilüfer herself explained to Noisey.

And so she embraces rave and gabber culture, following around a group of friends as they grow up being young and free in the city. It’s not all sunshine though, and even though the group experience some euphoric highs, the video also shows some of the lows, particularly the comedown after the night before. Much like Nilüfer’s songs, it’s a sweet but also melancholy look at life.
