LA based pop singer & model Cailin Russo shares new single and video "Die Down".
Her new single "Die Down" is a sultry, otherworldly song written about the isolating effect of an intense connection.
"I painted the song as a two people meeting at a party and then magnetically connecting so much to the point where everything around them dissipates when they're together song for the night,"
Written with JJ Scheffy and co-produced by iann dior collaborator Andrew Luce and JJ, "Die Down" crackles with sensuality with Cailin's falsetto, layered vocals, eerie synths, and a repeating chorus where each word feels like it's dripping off the next.
The song is accompanied by a music video that depicts a Cailin as a cyberpunk heroine.
Directed by Lane Stewart and featuring French model Sofiane Brahmi, the video references the techno thriller video game Metal Gear Solid.
"I loved playing games like 007 growing up so when my creative director introduced me to Metal Gear Solid, I was so excited to channel that energy for this video,"
"It's about two lovers who get so close they’re frightened by their vulnerability and feel the need to destroy each other before they show all their cards."
