Los Angeles, CA – October 20, 2016 – Following a packed video premiere screening and performance at the respected Flux Screening Series at UCLA’s Hammer Museum last week, the enigmatic artist known as IAMEVE will release her single “Starman” for purchase online, as well as streaming, starting tomorrow, October 21.
The stunning, must-see music video for “Starman” is available at IAMEVE’s own website at www.iameveami.com while the “Starman (SFW version)” is premiering now in partnership with The CG Bros on their YouTube channel, which has over one million subscribers. The CG Bros are relentless curators of inspirational computer graphics from around the world.
IAMEVE is a spell-binding storyteller who merges electronic music textures and visual dreamscapes. “Starman” was co-produced with David Christophere of the classic electronic music outfit Rabbit In The Moon, and the video was directed by Thor Freudenthal (Percy Jackson, Diary of A Wimpy Kid). The video’s Starman is played by Keon Alexander, beloved on FX’s Tyrant. The surrealistic love story is told in this mesmerizing music video, with IAMEVE painted in sacred geometry by body artist Michael Rosner.
IAMEVE, the mysterious creator who lives inside “Starman’s” painted other-word, has a unique backstory. With her deep love of fairy tales, visual art, and a diverse musical background, she found herself a Stranger in a Strange Land: Los Angeles – the story city. Shortly after arriving, a massive accident left her with a bionic elbow and unable to play guitar or piano.
“Lying there still, it caused me to open up to untested ways of creating because I needed a new set of tools to keep going. Electronic production had always been a passion and something I had experimented with, but this caused me to move fully in that direction. It freed me up and gave me an entirely new soundscape that feels so much more in tune with the world I am creating.”
With influences including Rodin, Bowie, Terry Gilliam, Dali, Kate Bush, Geiger, Lewis Carroll, Tim Burton, Tolkien, and Dune, “Starman” and upcoming, The Everything Nothing video series and EP will extend the fantasy of inner and outer space across Los Angeles and beyond.
