Electronic/R&B duo consisting of vocalist Terra Lopez and drummer Adam Pierce have released an entertaining and important music video for their latest single “BURST”. Co-directed by Kris Esfandiari and Colette Levesque, and created by a majority of queer, women and trans crew, the video has an underlying message as it utilises basketball as a coping mechanism.
“With this new material, I’m confronting a lot of personal issues I haven’t addressed before.” says Lopez. “I made a promise to myself that I’m no longer going to play small or hide behind metaphors, that I’m going to really lean into self-confidence, self-reliance and take up space. ‘BURST’ is the beginning of that.”
The single is taken from their upcoming EP SLEEPER HOLD, out on 4th October, as well as a North America tour in support of the release.
