Samuel Douek directs Denai Moore's latest music video for her latest single Cascades.
It’s with this new single that Moore’s troubled, troubling worldview is so perfectly encapsulated. As she sings about getting engulfed in sadness and depression, the sonic background shifts from optimistic to ominous, ending in a haunting, slowed down outro. The video too, is equal parts nightmarish and surrealist, fantastical and bizarre, with Moore searching for a way out of a dystopian maze, before finally freeing herself.
Denai on the promo and her inspirations: “I really wanted the Cascades video to translate like a weird, surreal dream. The song is about feeling visceral sadness and being too caught up in your own headspace.
