Simple yet spellbinding visuals take us through the one-of-a-kind hit “Fleur Du Desert” by Jjanice+. This is a song about true love between travelers living in a desolate place. Both with their own experiences and collections they come together and watch their love grow like a flower in the middle of the desert.
The song with the visual show both an intense journey to find someone in loneliness while uniting in finding that perfect soul mate, that desert flower. Realizing that the journey has ended, both parties appreciate the journey that they had to take to find that perfect someone. Why it was worth climbing high peaks, finding their way through the darkest of valleys and braving torrents, waterfalls and storms to find the one that they love. Through their collective experiences and through their journey to find each other to meet the end result all the more sweeter.
The video begins with revolving silhouettes in almost complete darkness. Standing both back to back and alone this really conveys the feeling of loneliness that we find in the song. As the video progresses and the lyrics begin to take a lighter tone so does the background and the models. Silhouettes turned into fully let people and the black and white colors eventually give way to a brighter tones. The silhouettes turn into people and their mood drastically changes into that of happiness. They have found each other and they can once again see color and happiness in their lives.
The visuals, directed by KhaciJay, are simple yet striking, they complement the meaning of the song perfectly and achieve a very personal connection with the viewer. It seems as though the singer is speaking directly to you or the silhouettes are looking directly into your eyes almost right through you. Close-ups on the smiles convey the same emotions in the viewers at the same time that the lyrics drastically shift into happier parts of the story.
Overall this is a very emotional and visually striking video for a wonderful song. Catch Fleur du Des Desert on Jjanice+’s new album Pierrot Couleur available in stores now.
