Alternative singer-songwriter Didirri is back with a beautiful visual for the single, ‘The Critic’. The visual is beautiful and showcases Didirri walking among different scenes while singing. He is seen in long hair and plain colored clothes on his journey though the visual. As the video goes on, his journey gets more tragic, bringing the lyrics to life.
He also announced his much-awaited second EP Sold For Sale, which will be released on September 25th. If it sounds anything like this, I can’t wait to hear it.
He celebrates this news with the release of lead single “The Critic,” along with the announcement of a special series of live-streamed concerts across the globe.
Didirri says, “The act of criticizing something can often ruin it. It may seem like the most intelligent move to analyze your every action, but make sure you don’t over correct and start to see things beyond what is actually going on. Love needs to be free of criticism to flourish. You aren’t the expert in your relationship; you are half of the team and half of the problem.”
Directed by Peter Hume, the accompanying video captures the endless, repetitive cycle of unnecessarily overthinking and overcomplicating a relationship, sometimes to the point of accidental destruction.
“I wanted to play with the concept of a hopeless romantic,” says Didirri. “All too often we ruin something beautiful by naming it or wreck something fragile by touching it. We can start with the best foot forward and end up on a treadmill, circling in our analysis of love over and over. It’s not just the thorns that will scratch you. If coddled, love will bleed.”
I love the poetic feel this has and his soft vocals that create this emotional stratosphere he creates. Please leave your feedback below or pick a reaction.
