Snowk is the joint effort of Japanese musicians Namy and Fuminori Kagajo. Their collective name is a nod to the fact that they were both born in “snow country”. The two find inspiration amongst the genres of R&B, Acid Jazz and House music. However, with J.Lamotta Suzume’s stunning vocals, comparisons can be made to the likes of FKJ, Tinashe and The Internet. Tel Aviv-born, Berlin-based singer J.Lamotta Suzume has been quickly rising in media recognition with features in well-known publications such as Earmilk and KALTBLUT Magazine amongst others.
Directed by Noa Biron, junkyard bliss is explored as J.Lamotta Suzume and her crew are seen making their way through an old car scrapyard in the video. Stylistic shots meeting a playful, exuberant atmosphere elevate the RnB laden sounds to a new level. Surrounded by a surprising amount of colours and using the light to their advantage, the three portray a camaraderie and flirty tone that is frequently missed in music videos of 2020.
J.Lamotta Suzume tells us about the diverse group who came together to create the video: “When Snowk asked me what I thought about making a music video, the first thing that came to my head was dancing. I was fortunate to have the chance to work with the Shanghai-based choreographer Karin Uziyahoo, who happened to be in Tel-Aviv during COVID time. Then, a few weeks later, while visiting my second home Berlin, we got the artwork together with the South-African photographer Gabriella Achadinha. This project had many artists from different places involved, and it’s exciting to keep this exchange going, especially at such times.”
