Shadeemus takes us into the deep waters of El Pida wreck in Cyprus in their new video “Clovis,” featuring freediver Georgina Miller. It’s a stunning, visual journey through the haunting and majestic emptiness that gives you a vicarious break from earth life. “Clovis” is based on a fictional character and comet created by the band. Their own adaptation of the story of Atlantis features Clovis and his love interest, a mermaid, who ended up not fleeing with him. The track captures the heartbreak that of their story:
“While making Clovis we took musical cues from bedroom pop and modern psychedelia, with nostalgic cozy chords, dreamy ethereal melodies and groovy waltzing drums. Inspired by artists such as Yellow Days, Khruangbin and Grizzly Bear. We took those influences and peppered them over our unique blend of bluesy rock and groovy soul for an emotional nostalgia trip,” shared Shadeemus.
On the video, the trio shared: “While creating the concept of Atlantis and Clovis we stumbled on Daan’s videos on his youtube which inspired the world and atmosphere of Clovis, after making the track we wanted to post a short clip on Instagram and we reached out and asked him, we sadly couldn’t post the clip, but he love the song so much he offered to make music video for us of shipwreck footage in Cyprus with the Aquacity Freediving school.”
Comprised of Scott Xylo (Shaquille Thompson) and Adeemus (Adam Martin), Shadeemus formed back in January 2020. The duo met while working together in a coffee shop in Leicester where their mutual love for cappuccinos and psychedelic rock led to songsmithing together. The band later recruited Demigosh (Ade Balogun) in February after meeting at a gig back in November 2019. “Clovis” is from their upcoming EP Atlantis, which they’ll be sharing more details soon.
