The lyrics of “Take You On A Trip” are straightforward, as Ginny expresses her desires in a sensual love affair. On screen, steamy close-ups allude to something happening we’re not privy to. With kaleidoscopic lights and electrifying keytar and violin, this clip is sure to grab your attention! Ginny Luke says about the video, “The music video for ‘Take You On a Trip’ is an expression of young love and conveys each lover’s experience as a ‘trip’ or a journey to transcendence. This song encapsulates a moment of time and a love experience in my life that I wanted to write about to preserve the memory forever. It shows a side of myself that is softer, which you can hear vocally, and visually feminine and blissful. The electric violin and keytar duet represents the two lovers in the story. This duet-outro is the climax, or nirvana of the piece. As far as visual style for ‘Take You On a Trip’ we wanted something that felt stylish and clean, like a club in the void. Having a slow escalation and visual crescendo later in the song was very important to expressing a release of built up tension throughout. During the ‘trip’ sequence, it was critical to transport the viewer to a place that felt somewhat familiar, but mostly new from a sensory standpoint, so it sort of conveys the idea that when in love, you just want to enjoy the ride.”
