Florida-raised, California-residing singer-songwriter Kris Angelis unveils a captivating video for her recent single That Siren, Hope. Like the alluring song title, Angelis beguiles with her heartfelt vocals.
Angelis is also the focus of the video, which was shot and edited by Lee Holbrook. She emotes for the camera as she unspools her storytelling tune.
She’s surrounded by the beautiful natural world in the clip which is filled with expansive beach wilderness scenery, from the driftwood and giant boulders on the shore to the restless ocean waves.
The song is about having trust in a relationship, or even in yourself, and the feeling that hits when that trust is fragile or broken. Shots of Angelis dunked in the water and struggling for air is a metaphor for trying to get free of a bad situation and to live boldly and without uncertainty.
That Siren, Hope is the title track off Angelis’ new EP That Siren Hope, which made landfall on January 24th.
