Slovenian musical duo zalagasper have released an incredibly ethereal, dream-like and contemplative new single ‘origami’. To accompany the release of their new single, a lyric video has been uploaded on Youtube. Fans to the contest may recognise the beach (a beach, remember those?) setting where the video is shot: Tel Aviv! I’m sure some of you reading this may have even wandered on the same beach.
In the description of the lyric video, zalagasper explain how the footage where the footage has come from:
We went to Tel Aviv in 2019. The schedule was packed, and the days were long, but we found a way to make the evenings nice and relaxing. We went to the beach with people who are dear to us and we forgot about the world for a little while. Žiga Krajnc captured some of these moments, which you can now see in this lyric video for origami.zalagasper
You can also listen to ‘origami’ on the usual music streaming platforms such as Spotify.
