AVEC shares new visceral video for most honest track yet, ‘Under Water’

AVEC has shared a brand new single along with an accompanying video for her brand new enticing single ‘Under Water’, taken from her recently released album 'Heaven / Hell' released on 14 September via Earcandy Recordings. AVEC’s latest album Heaven / Hell was produced and mixed by Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, SOAK, Berkeley) at Attica Audio Studios in Ireland. The new single follows success of AVEC’s debut record What If We Never Forget released in February 2018 and the dazzling remix package ‘Waiting For Remixes’ which included remixes by electronic producers Alex Schulz, HOUT and Nora Medin.

Her latest single ‘Under Water; is an extremely personal take on being honest with yourself. It might hurt to be honest with others while keeping your own mental health in check, but in the long run it’s needed. It might feel like you’re “breathing under water”, but if you don’t attempt to swim through the waters, you will end up drowning yourself in negativity. 

Watch AVEC's 'Under Water' below -
The music video stars a stellar performance from actress Runa Hansen and was directed, produced and shot by Gabriel Hyden. AVEC’s video for ‘Under Water’ is a gripping and difficult to watch journey of an individual's struggle with self-acceptance. Water is ever present as we see the lead struggle to breathe in simple situations, but fighting it nevertheless. My initial thought was that it’s about anxiety, depression and mental health, but towards the end she accepts her circumstances, making me realise it could also be about self-acceptance. Love who you are, even if you sometimes have to work on it. 

Speaking on the music video, AVEC adds, “When I first saw the video for ‘Under Water’ - filled with so many emotions and despair, I got goosebumps all over my body, because it just moved me so much, I can’t even describe it. I love it, I love the whole idea of it and I absolutely love the scenes they shot underwater - she is such an amazing actress!
