Shot on 16mm film, director Harun Güler creates a moody visual world for AVES’ single “Gem of the Ocean” to inhabit. Pairing Icelandic artist JDFR’s haunting vocals with the jarring narrative of a self-destructive relationship between two young partygoers, the video is unnerving and captivating. I am in love with the sound of the Finnish band AVES feat. JFDR who is known as Björk’s favourite new talent. Have a listen by yourself.
