Los Angeles-based Alekesam is pleased to unveil the video for “It’s Not You, It’s Here,” the first single from his upcoming debut. The song blends r & b, jazz, and hip hop sounds to create a sense of floating away; a feeling translated into the video, directed and shot by Jason Bergh.

“This record is extremely artistic and reflective, and we wanted the video to capture the same vibe,” says Bergh. “Our original intention was to take a single still image and bring it to life with feminine movements that were at times even out of focus and shot at 500 frames per second. Our hopes were that the viewer will feel the spirit of the song as well as be visually brought into its world without overpowering the senses with fast imagery or having the artist on screen. It’s about the music right now.”
