Watch Anzie Dasabe’s Quixotic Video for ‘Freeways’ Directed by Landon Yost

Avant-garde R&B crooner Anzie Dasabe’s first music video is a stunning dreamscape.

By Bubba Krishnamurti

Anzie Dasabe’s delicately experimental new single now has an equally dynamic video to accompany it. Dasabe’s first EP, ‘Apt 4b’ was released earlier this year to much acclaim. Dasabe reportedly approached the record as a personal diary of sorts. The title of the EP is her apartment number for when she lived in her first New York apartment alone. Freeways is a patient track that crescendos to a series of escapes to sanctuary: vignettes of empty beaches, car journeys and interpersonal exchange. A soft monologue by Dasabe paired with the sound of the ocean opens the track.

“I wanted the video to reflect the feeling of literally trying to put some distance in between you and your problems,” Dasabe described the video. “No matter how far you run you won’t be able to shake them. Distance will only provide you clarity and peace for fleeting moments. You need to face your problems head on to feel true relief.”

Brooklyn based director Landon elaborated, “A part of me will always want to escape from my life and start over, even when things are going well. We wanted this film to let you indulge in that urge. To run away with Anzie and Hanif and begin again in a new town, free of your old demons – unless you never faced them in the first place.”

Watch the video, now, please.
