Daya releases ‘Insomnia’ music video

Daya has unveiled the music video for her latest single, ‘Insomnia’.

Directed by Nick Harwood, the visual for ‘Insomnia’ takes place at a gritty rave, however, whilst everyone else is partying the night away, Daya sits alone in a darkly-lit room yearning for her loved one.

Speaking about the video, Daya said in a press release: “‘Insomnia’ at its core is a gritty club pop anthem about missing the person you love, so it felt appropriate to take the visuals in a rave direction in a grimy abandoned warehouse that feels like something you’d stumble into at 3am in Berlin to temporarily neglect whatever pain you’re feeling.

“Nick Harwood took this vision and perfectly brought it to life by adding intense strobe lighting and other atmospheric elements to capture these flickering moments of desperation and loneliness, even amidst a seemingly lively, crowded setting.”

Written by Daya, Oscar Görres, J Kash and Michael Pollack and produced by Görres, ‘Insomnia’ has already amassed over six million streams on Spotify.

‘Insomnia’ celebrates the new era of music from Daya and we couldn’t be more excited for what else she has in store for us. Speaking about her forthcoming material in our interview last year, she said: “I hope people will feel more connected to me as an artist. I definitely open up on this next album – I’m in a new relationship and a new stage in my life. It all feels very natural, and has come together really well. I hope listeners will love it and feel even more connected to me than before.”
