Amber Arcades, the project of Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf, is releasing her debut album, Fading Lines, on June 3 via Heavenly. Now she has shared a video for the album’s title track (previously she had shared the audio). It features a parachutist going in reverse, falling upwards. Watch it below.

Gover Meit directed the clip and had this to say in a press release: “From the very first time I heard Amber Arcades’ ‘Fading Lines,’ I saw this picture of a parachutist flying upwards in my head. Couldn’t help it, couldn’t stop thinking about it. So that’s what happened. One day, I looked up to the sky and I saw two people dancing around each other in mid air, falling down with enormous speed, recording this music video at the same time. Watching it chills me, I have the feeling I’m there, flying upwards while moving downwards, into a deep blue sea of floating air.”

Annelotte de Graaf commented on the track in the press release: “The song is loosely inspired by my grandfather’s death a while ago and the way he was able to accept everything his life had and hadn’t been. It’s about the feeling of being in an overwhelmed state, like you’ve been propelled free-fall into something you don’t understand for the most part, lines between memories and moments fading until it all turns into a gloriously incandescent blur. When Gover told me about his idea of recording a person dancing mid air, slowly falling up into the sky, I felt like this was the best possible way to translate this overwhelmed feeling into moving images. I never could’ve imagined it would turn out quite this beautiful though.”
