Premiere: Watch INVT's New "Velvet Seas" Vid
If your summer hasn’t hit Dazed and Confused levels of epic yet, INVT’s new “Velvet Seas” vid will take you there. Set in the hazy heat of sand dunes somewhere way out west, “Velvet Seas” catches bandmates Luca Medici and Delbert Perez in full summer haze mood, awakened by a mysterious woman who subsequently leads them through the desert to the synth pop tune of dreamy, hazy beats that appropriately match the visual mood.
“We wanted to play with the theme of changing spaces and different environments,” Medici says. “For the album cover of Concrete Beach we combined tropical Miami with the frozen New York City winter. So for the video of ‘Velvet Seas’, we wanted to incorporate the ocean, and because we’ve always dreamed of shooting a music video in the Californian desert, we found a place where we could do both.”
The trio’s pilgrimage ends at the beach in a symbolic, we’ve-made-it kind of way, and afterwards, we part ways with “Velvet Seas” with a final scene of blurry car interiors—a last goodbye.
“The music video was shot in the Oceano desert, north of LA,” Perez explains. “To reach the sand dunes from the coast, we had to drive the Prius on the beach for two miles. The car got stuck three times and we had to pull it out of the sand. It almost got sucked into the ocean, but somehow we made it back to LA that night.”
