As record labels, bands on the struggle, and fans of said bands know all too well these days, cutting through the glut of new music streaming on the internet is no small feat. That is, unless you get a beloved (and brilliant) director to film your debut music video at what—according to Paste—is a location from his most beloved (and brilliant) television series.
DLF.TV and our friends at Flavorwire dropped a brand new David Lynch-directed promo video today for Ariana Delawari, a multimedia artist and singer-songwriter who was discovered by Lynch after a performance at LA’s Silverlake Lounge. What’s more, Lynch also mixed her upcoming debut album, Lion of Panjshir, produced one song (“Suspend Me”), and signed Delawari to his record label, David Lynch MC.
Stream Delawari’s album here, watch an interview or promo video here, and check out Lynch’s caps-locked endorsement below (which I like to imagine him yelling over a speakerphone, à la FBI Bureau Chief Gordon Cole):
ARIANA WRITES GREAT SONGS – THEY ARE FILLED WITH FEELINGS AND THOUGHTS FROM HER LIFE – HER LIFE IN HOLLYWOOD AND LIFE IN AFGHANISTAN WHERE HER ROOTS ARE – ANCIENT AND MODERN FLOW TOGETHER HERE – THIS MIXTURE OF CULTURES AND HER MELODIES AND LYRICS CONJURE A GREAT UNIQUE FEELING IN PEOPLE – PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED AND EMOTIONALLY MOVED BY THIS MUSIC — ARIANA’S GOT SOMETHING TO SING ABOUT AND SHE DOES IT REAL WELL – IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DEBUT ALBUM SHE’S MADE.
