WAFIA finds empowerment during magic hour in I'm Good video
20 September 2018
Australian electronic-pop artist WAFIA is turning heads with her infectious release “I’m Good”. Co-written with Wrabel (Ellie Goulding, Adam Lambert), and produced by Rogét Chahayed (Halsey, Travis Scott) and Grammy nominated writer / producer John Hill (Portugal. the Man, Foster The People), the buzzing bop was released to acclaim via Future Classic. The Fader coined “I’m Good” as a "post-heartbreak glo-up" while NewNowNext gushed “Wafia’s sweet, angelic voice riding this groovy bassline is impeccable”.
The captivating tune has garnered over 2.5M streams on Spotify and spins at radio stations across the globe. “I’m Good” is currently the most played track on triple j for a third week running and the stations most played song since its release.
Today Wafia has unveiled the official “I’m Good” video. The visual is a true one shot music video, captured on film by director James Robinson during magic hour on a Highland Park street in Los Angeles. Robinson divulged the video treatment was “all about reinterpreting Wafia’s song into a magical realism context: seeing poetry in the everyday... The video is about bringing pop back down from its inaccessible heights and seeing yourself be liberated even in the simplest, everyday moments.”
When asked about the filming process Wafia shared, “Because filming any kind of music video isn’t hard enough, we set out to shoot this video as one continuous shot at sunset haha. I’m so glad we went for it though, it felt so natural and seeing it back I can’t imagine having done it any other way.”
She’s preparing to for her next release coming out on Australia's Future Classic label and will be touring worldwide in support of the project - including a North American tour at the end of 2018 that includes support dates for Louis The Child.
