Video Voyageur: 3Qs with Gilli Moon

Gilli Moon is back again with her latest music video for her track, “Fire.” Her video is enthralling and flashy, which beautifully accompanies the songs passion and fierceness. The Australian singer songwriter just dropped her latest album, “Beautiful Mess, Vol.2” along with this music video following up her January release, “Beautiful Mess, Vol. 1.” 

With Gilli Moon’s history as a songwriter and producer, this epic double album comes as no surprise. The colorful and vibrant music video accompanying “Fire,” is a perfect depiction of the energy and spirit she brings us in this track, along with her whole release. Enthralled by her intensity between cuts of women dancing with empowerment and flashes of color, Gilli Moon puts her all into her latest video.

After an incredible double album accompanied by an enticing music video, who knows what Gilli Moon is going to throw at us next. We sat down with Gilli as she dives into her process and video, below!

  1. Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically in this way? 

This song is about truly honoring female empowerment, sensuality, honest expression of passion and sensuality. There is a sense of rawness with the lyrics that, coupled with the pop/EDM beats, provides an energetic depiction of a truly uninhibited person able to express their feelings for another.  I chose a mix of visuals that expresses female strength and sensuality, between images of me singing and moving, and youthful, moving and dancing women to capture that essence.

2. What was the inspiration behind this video (visuals, storyline, etc.)? 

I am a strong believer in self-empowerment, and female empowerment. I want women, young and old, to feel beautiful in their authenticity, to feel they can express themselves truthfully, including owning their own sensuality. ‘Fire’ is a song and music video that hopes to honor strength, self-empowerment and honest expression. I really love combining music, visuals and dance together,  and I believe I captured that in this video.

3. What was the process of making this video? 

Apart from writing, singing and playing piano and organs on my song ‘Fire’, I co-produced the music with Matt Thorne, of MT Studios (he is well known for performing with /producing for The Eels, Trapt, Ratt). I produced exclusively the music video myself. I’m very much a DIY polymedia artist and love to not only write and produce music, but also visual content. I sliced together shots of me performing as well as eloquent, feisty and sensual shots of female and male dancers, and other visual elements that depicted fire and strength.
