Ikonic Visual: APHROSE - "Move On"
Canadian soul artist APHROSE releases the simplistically riveting visual to her latest Scott McCannell produced single "Move On." The Michael Tobin directed visual displays her strong lyricism through this daringly stunning black and white visual of tenacious women marching head-on into whatever life woes they may be enduring. The concept of having 20+ brave, women of different ethnicities and backgrounds walk in solidarity, past the oppression, past the racism, past the hatred, past the bigotry, past the weight of the patriarchy and rise above it - powerful. This records clearly laced with robust sounds, lyrical intensities and a heavy, necessary message.
A new voice to your ears ,maybe, but no new-comer to industry shoulder-rubbing. APHROSE has had the opportunity to work with artists such as Daniel Caesar, Lee Fields and The Expressions, Nikki Yanofski to name a few. She's proud to be living in a time where women are standing up for themselves. "Move On," a love song that breaks barriers and frees us from our own limitations, check it out below.
She adds 'It is not your average love song about relationships between two people, but rather about the love a person finds when they realize their own self-worth. Move On is that feeling you get when you finally become aware that you've had enough of barriers like hate and fear and you're not going to let those walls hold you back anymore.’
Remove your keys from out the door
Don't know how else to say that your not welcomed anymore
Get gone don't wanna hear your lies cuz your making me sick every word that you speak reflects the guilt in your eyes
In regards to the visual she states, "This video is dedicated to the life and memory of one of the strongest, most influential women I've ever known; my Grandmother Rose. It was her who taught me the value of self worth; because if she didn't have the resolve to break out of the cycle of pain that held her prisoner for so many years, my family and I would probably not be here today. She found the strength to Move On where there was none, and by doing so gave us the lifetime of love that has shaped me and will continue to guide me forever."
