Dream-gaze duo Polychrome amalgamate light and sound on visual for ‘Synesthesia’
Victoria, half of Polychrome, contributed a large amount of the production on the debut album. She feels there is still a long way to go for women in the music industry and wants to inspire more to get involved in production and engineering roles since these are typically male-dominated.
‘The lyrics to this song are very important and personal to me, it’s about the crazy emotional shifts when big life changing events happen to you. I had a few of them come along at once and this is me trying to make sense of them. Sometimes the feelings are so intense you feel like they cross over with your other senses, a bit like Synesthesia, muddling up light with sound, tasting fear. Our other videos have been quite abstract or tell a story, we wanted this one to be more personal, like the lyrics. The director (Martin Senyszak) caught this vulnerability I think, and combined it with some of that sensory confusion.’ – Vicky
