Bilingual electro-pop artist Maryze dropped her first French music video on Friday, called “Dis-Moi”.
Directed by Amanda Macchia and inspired by Italian Giallo films, the video for “Dis-Moi” plays out like a stylish arthouse thriller and features footage from Dario Argento’s horror classics, Suspiria and Inferno.
This track comes off of Maryze’s 2019 debut EP, Like Moons. Here she is talking about her new video:
“We shot the video on a freezing night in Toronto under pink neons – it already kind of felt like a delirious dream. Amanda picked up on the eerie vibes of the song and brought a beautifully unsettling tone to the shots. ‘Dis-Moi’ is about wanting to open up to the people we love about our demons, but worrying it will be too heavy for them. I wrote it as I was preparing to tell a partner about the darker parts of myself that I was ashamed of, but desperately wanted to share.”
Hi, my name is Max. I’m a journalism student currently on placement here at Canadian Beats. I grew up in the GTA, but I’ve been around Ontario a little bit for school in the past few years. I think in a lot of ways the landscape of Canadian music is partially shaped by the journalists who choose to dedicate their time to giving it exposure. By promoting and contributing to a healthy media environment for Canadian artists, journalists contribute in their own way to keeping a strong Canadian music identity alive. I’m excited to hopefully be a small part of that contribution over the next few weeks.
