Producer Wax Tailor has just dropped his latest single and award-winning video, ‘Misery (ft. Rosemary Standley)’. The single precedes his highly anticipated album ‘The Shadow Of Their Suns’ available January 2021. The eerie yet powerful video has already won awards for Best Music Video at New York International Film Awards, Oniros Film Awards and Cannes Indie Short Awards. The video, directed by Berkay Türk, features a dystopian story of a society under surveillance, providing commentary on an authoritarian society. The track itself encompasses downtempo, mellow tones, and features the glowing vocals of Rosemary Standley.
Discussing the creation of the video, Wax Tailor said: "Berkay contacted me earlier this year to propose to work on an animated music video. I was just ending ‘Misery’. The speech I used comes from the past (the ‘80s) and is unfortunately still relevant in the present. So, I said it would be interesting to imagine a future dystopian scenario. Berkay came with the emoji faces idea & we’ve begun to exchange ideas about the concept & this allegorical lecture.”
France hailing Wax Tailor has sold nearly half a million physical copies and garnered hundreds of millions of views on streaming platforms around the world. The producer is recognised as one of the leaders of the international hip hop electro scene, and has received continued support from publications including Pitchfork, Mixmag, NME, Wonderland and CLASH Magazine, while also receiving radio play from BBC Radio 6, KEXP, KCRW, RADIO EINS and RADIO NOVA. He is currently preparing for a new international tour next year which will contribute to his count of more than 800 concerts in 60 countries. Wax Tailor’s upcoming album is one to watch out for, and there is no doubt 2021 will be another big year for him.
