Toronto-based indie/pop artist Freddie Future has released the official music video for his single, “Too Heavy” today. It was directed by award-winning director Colin G Cooper (Jessie Reyez, Emotional Oranges, Rezz, Rynx) and was shot over three days Toronto’s Mod Club Theatre, an unknown dock location on an eerie dock and an abandoned farm.
The complex themes of the video harmoniously blend together aspects from each of Freddie’s seven lyric videos from the self-titled EP. Fans are rewarded with the ability to put the pieces together from these videos, and to see how he combines the five elements of earth, water, fire, air, and space in this final masterpiece, which deals with carrying the weight of a relationship on your own.
“I wanted to create something that would feel like an evolution of the ideas previously presented in the lyric videos for this EP. Those videos felt like quick glimpses into Freddie’s world, and now we’re bringing you fully inside of it, pulling all of those ideas together, and expanding on them. The central concept, much like the EP itself, is grounded in a relationship dynamic, and I wanted that dynamic to have a surreal, dreamlike quality to it.” – Colin G Cooper

I’m Nicole, a biology teacher by day, but my life revolves around music. I’m that girl that you will always find with the concert t-shirt on and ear buds in. It is rare that you find me without some type of music playing in the background. I connect all of my life experiences to music. It truly has its own language in my heart. There is nothing more exciting than taking in all that a concert has to offer. I love to support local Canadian acts and attend as many shows that I can.
