JES – “Under the Midnight Sun” music video

“I felt like we all need some time away from the stressful reality of our day-to-day lives. Being somewhere else, under the midnight sun, seemed like the perfect distraction. It’s a place where everyone can be whatever they want to. I feel like we managed to capture that special party energy, that sense of freedom that we’ve all been missing lately. To have that sense of possibility and optimism is so important.” – JES stated

The colorful music video (produced and directed by Katheryne KTEE Thomas & KT Kent) is set in a strange land, where the sun never sets. The enjoyable visual is packed with stunning imagery and a strong narrative of hope and mystery. Furthermore, “Under the Midnight Sun” contains ear-welcoming vocals and tuneful melodies. Also, the party-friendly tune possesses energetic instrumentation flavored with electro-pop, EDM, and modern dance elements.

“Never underestimate the power of pink shoes and the girl wearing them.”
