San Diego songbird Miss Erika Davies has unveiled the new video for “Part the Sea,” the title track off her latest album. Directed by the ever-talented Joelsons, the video casts Davies against a beautifully shot beach backdrop. Unfortunately for Davies, the video was shot in the winter, and the frigid conditions made for a bit of an uncomfortable experience. As the Joelsons write on their blog:
When it was time for Erika to lay down in the water, the look on her face was priceless. After a couple of seconds of pondering to herself whether she was taking the plunge or not she ended up agreeing to sacrifice her body temperature for the sake of art. The last shot when the wave crashes around her is so gorgeous. Every time we see it we smile, not only because of how pretty it is, but also because we know how cold it really was.
Luckily for us, she was a trooper, and the finished product looks fantastic. The thawed-out Davies later recorded a digital single with her fella Stephen Rey, which you can listen to and purchase here.
