When it comes to varied, eclectic music scenes, Berlin’s underground clubs and heady nightlife is inimitable. As singer-songwriter Kean Farrar confirms, “Berlin’s really got something”.
Dropping his new single “Windowshopping”, the 20-year-old sings about his beloved home city and “all the possibilities that are there”. Combining smooth alternative R&B with a pop appeal and raw, intimate lyrics, Farrar releases accompanying black-and-white visuals inspired by Don’s Plum, the low-budget 90s indie film featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Toby Maguire.
“This music video is literally a reflection on my nights out in Berlin”, Farrar explains. “Somewhere between tedium and fun. All the people in the video are my friends. I wanted a mood that feels real, one that is not retouched, but is timeless. I found this mood in Don’s Plum. But the music video is about today, about back then, well, about any time really. I think this ‘what am I going to do, don’t want to think about it’ mood echoes through generations”.
