When melodic bass producer and TSIS favorite Illenium dropped his 13-track sophomore album AWAKE last September, we knew we were in for a treat. Since the massive success of the original album, Illenium has toured North America, landed a spot on our top electronic albums of 2017 announced sets at Coachella and Okeechobee, and dropped beautiful piano covers of some of his album’s best tracks. However, it looks like we’re nowhere near the end of AWAKE’s impact.
Today Illenium released the music video for his standout song “Crawl Outta Love” ft. Annika Wells and it’s a stunning representation of Illenium’s vision for the track. Fans of Illenium’s live production may notice that this video reflects the producer’s long-standing love of nature and stunning landscapes, but as the video progresses the organic visuals are mixed with more mythical elements. A dark, robed and masked figure offers a glass icon to a shrine depicted on the album art for AWAKE and a phoenix dramatically emerges. This phoenix then interacts with the natural landscapes and adds a legendary, almost spiritual feel to the track’s depiction. This music video has us very excited for the next visual project from Illenium. Enjoy!
