To celebrate the release of her debut EP ‘Back In The Day’, Chrissi is sharing the video for final single ‘Tracksuit’.
“Tracksuit was the first time I put those emotions into a song,” Chrissi notes. “I wanted to put it on the EP because I relate heavily to being attracted to unavailable men. When that happens, it’s not really me to do anything about it so I simmer in the feelings and write songs about them.”
Accompanied by a video directed by Natty Kasambala, Natty explains, “I really loved that the track was centred around this dramatic and candid romantic fantasy which is something I think we can all relate to whether we can admit it or not. And so I wanted to explore how far our imagination can actually take us, what happens when we insert ourselves into someone else’s reality and everything blurs - the dangers of emotional third-wheeling. I think there’s a lot of vulnerability and humour within that that also exists within all of Chrissi’s art so I wanted to strike a balance of that within the visual too.
“It’s been a total trip sitting in the director’s seat for the first time with this video but I couldn’t have imagined a better fit in terms of the human story, an incredible track and such an exciting, refreshing and talented new artist as Chrissi - and someone who loves love in all its forms and messiness just as much as me!”
