iyla Releases Official Music Video For ‘California.’

Following the release of her debut EP War + Raindrops [3T Entertainment/Astra Velum/EMPIRE], rising star iyla has revealed the last official music video to be taken from her EP. The stunning visual for “California” was directed by her long-time collaborator Embryo, and debuted today on YouTube and received its editorial debut via V Magazine, who described the video as “breathtaking.”

“California” is the second song I ever wrote with my producer Kadis.” iyla reveals. It is deeply personal, and it’s theme revolves around the heartache/heartbreak of knowing the love that you’re experiencing is only temporary. It was important for me and my creative director Embryo to capture a more stripped down version of myself, as well as the natural beauty of the state I grew up in. California is my home, and this visual is my heart.”
