As soon as the funk-filled bars open “Time” – the newest release from Asian-American artist Audrey – the singer’s slinky vocals pull you in like a hypnotic haze.
Self-assured minimal lyrics and dreamy snapshot-like visuals, as well as setting a precedent as one of the first Korean-American R&B artists breaking into the mainstream – how could we possibly not stan?
In the music video for “Time”, we follow Audrey on a trippy journey through the underbelly of Hollywood. Boogying on a green-lit rooftop. Flipping signposts next to the highway. Interacting with fading and aged stars.
‘“Time” is a song about paralysis,” explains Audrey. “I wrote it during a weird transition period when I’d just left school to take a gap year. I thought to myself, ‘if there were a place housing people in this limbo, this chrysalis-like phase, what would it look like?’ I pitched the concept to a bunch of directors and Emma Westenberg sent over her rendition/treatment. Seeing Emma do her thing was like a semester of college in a day. She’s fucking brilliant and I learned so much.”
