Bogotá, Colombia-born, Los Angeles, California-based artist Loyal Lobos (aka Andrea Silva) today debuted the stunning video for her latest single “You Were Bored” via PAPER Magazine. The video drops following Friday’s release of her debut album Everlasting—executive produced by Teddy Geiger (Lizzo, Shawn Mendes, Leon Bridges) and produced by longtime collaborator Evan Voytas—which arrived to praise and support from Rolling Stone, i-D/Vice, Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, NPR Music, Pitchfork, Remezcla, American Songwriter, Alt Citizen (feature), and others.
“The video started out as an idea that could be shaped into a COVID-19 safe production consisting of building miniature sets by myself in my garage, and then shooting the whole project with only four people for the miniatures, and shooting Andrea separately on a stage. In pre-production we settled on five different scenes, with each one having the landscape and effects slightly different and increasingly more surreal until we end up with our final live action scene,” explains director Zach Madden. “It’s been a real learning experience for myself and the whole team, especially for our VFX artist Louis Celano, to create these super interesting scale model composites and 3D prints for the video. I’m particularly happy with how well the video works with the song, and is a testament to Andrea’s writing as well as her input throughout the project.”
