Kingsley Ibeneche chases love and communes with nature in the “Sanctuary” video
The cover of Kingsley Ibeneche‘s new Realms EP, released via Astro Nautica a couple Fridays ago, features a beautiful and dream-like photograph of three muses perched on a balcony, and the scene comes to vivid life in the new music video for “Sanctuary,” the song that opens the set.
In it, we see Ibeneche racing through green spaces and wooded hills, following the muses into a mysterious greenhouse where the scene turns from hazy to magical. Video director Sidney Kreitzer told The Fader that video is a representation of the pursuit of love and companionship:
“I wanted to create an honest, organic representation of how one comes to love. Lessons are learned. There are uncertainties. We adapt. I think, naturally, we grow to learn where love is constant throughout. Then we trudge and chase after it through all of our ever-changing phases.”
Watch “Sanctuary” below. Kingsley Ibeneche plays a free concert in celebration of the new EP this Thursday, February 28th at World Cafe Live upstairs. More information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
