Singer-songwriter and producer Absofacto, the alias of Jonathan Visger, brings us the music video for his latest single Dissolve. The new track is lifted from his debut EP Thousand Peaces, released via Atlantic Records. Dissolve meshes a dreamy indie-pop sound with grooving rhythms, while swaggering vocals in the verses collide with upbeat hook-driven chorus writing. Visger self-directed the cinematic music video featuring American actor Alex Knight, providing the perfect visual pairing to the sound.
Commenting on the release, the artist has said, “‘Dissolve’ came out of a flash of inspiration that immediately felt special, so it was only natural that the video should be conceived the same way.” He continues, “I wrote the treatment in 10 minutes, then spent 6 months planning, directing, editing the video with my co-director Matt Day. The song found new layers and meaning for me as I brought the vision to life: A lifeguard, played by my friend Alex Knight (Breaking Bad, Last Week Tonight), trapped with his own thoughts and emotions while working the night shift at an empty pool.”
