Brazilian-American singer-songwriter Sami Chohfi unveils the music video for “Serenade the Darkness,” a track from his recently released debut album, Extraordinary World.
A collection of eight songs written while Sami toured six countries, Extraordinary World features two tracks/music videos – “Dirty Your Soul” and “This Majesty” – premiered on Rolling Stone India, along with being added to MTV, VH1, Music Choice, and Revolt TV.
Sami’s distinctive sound merges elements of rock, acoustic, and modern folk music into deluxe concoctions influenced by artists like Chris Cornell, Stone Temple Pilots, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Beatles, and Radiohead.
The video, produced by Alexandre Suplicy, features the talents of Jean Dolabella (drums) of Ego Kill Talent and Sepultura, David Caggiano (bass, keys), and Brazilian actress and model Raquel Ferrari. Shot in the city of São Paulo, the visuals depict the arc of the thrill and ache of love.
“Serenade the Darkness” rolls out on a Latin-tinted melody riding an alluring undulating rhythm. Chock-full of sensuous textures topped by Sami’s longing timbres, the lyrics echo the burning desire of passion amalgamated with the throbbing anguish of heartache. At once seductive and intimate, “Serenade the Darkness” exposes raw vulnerability.
