Singer-songwriter and producer Absofacto (Jonathan Visger) has released the brand new music video “Dissolve” from his debut EP, Thousand Peaces, with Atlantic Records. Self-directed by Visger with the help of Matt Day, and executive produced by Day and Ben Fee, the video follows American actor Alex Knight through an underwater explosion of color with the professional synchronized swimming collective called The Aqualillies.
“Dissolve” came out of a flash of inspiration that immediately felt special, so it was only natural that the video should be conceived the same way,” says Visger. “I wrote the treatment in 10 minutes, then spent 6 months planning, directing, editing the video with my co-director Matt Day. The song found new layers and meaning for me as I brought the vision to life: A lifeguard, played by my friend Alex Knight (Breaking Bad, Last Week Tonight), trapped with his own thoughts and emotions while working the night shift at an empty pool.”
During late 2015, Absofacto released “Dissolve,” a stand-out track featured on Thousand Peaces, which went to #1 on Hype Machine, generated over 7 million Spotify streams, 1.5 million YouTube views and countless “fan edit” videos. The EP includes “Light Outside,” which racked up 3.6 million Spotify streams in under six months and just recently broke 4 million. Other highlights include “Two Wrongs,” featuring dancehall maverick Kranium, an emotional track with island-inspired swagger and “Done With Love,” an angelic duet with songstress Herizen.
