Helado Negro: “Mamember”
Perfect equilibrium in kraut electronica, synth pop and delicate harmonious vocals would be an initial description to Helado Negro’s Island Universe Story-One. It’s a monumental EP, with 8 tracks of down-tempo rhythms with stunning musical composition and tender melodies.
Now, Roberto Lange, better known as Helado Negro, has released a new video for “Mamember,” the first track off the EP. Ryan Dickie, director of the video, visually responds to Mamember with captivating imagery and detailed attention. Helado Negro’s enchanting serene vocals pair wonderfully with the mesmerizing display of color and light. The video which exceeds its purpose of visual form to a song, but also serves as an introspective interrogation of individuality. As images cast a visual spell, the spectator is hypnotized by recurrent colors, light and Lange’s on-loop lyric recuérdate dónde estás translating to “remember where you are”. The excessive use of light and thoughtful lyrics; illumination and existence together as centerpiece message throughout the video.
A beautiful reciprocal response between images and music; complementing each other, respectively. Without exaggeration or existential presumption; Helado Negro once again makes evident his musical talent and ability to entice listeners.
