Solange made her directorial debut on July 15th when she shot the video for “Sandcastle Disco,” the second single off her sophomore album, SoL-AngeL & The Hadley St. Dreams.
The 22-year-old wrote the treatment for “Sandcastle Disco,” just as she did for her first single, “I Decided.” The video is a journey into a cutting-edge, inventive, fantasy land of abstract visuals that come together to make a video that is a rollercoaster ride for the viewer that only gets better just when he/she thinks it’s over.
“It’s a living pop-up book, each page folding over and zooming into the next. The colors are vivid. I used many references from the movie Across the Universe that are links in the treatment and also the [Hewlett-Packard] commercials we’ve seen running with Jay-Z and Serena Williams,” states Solange.
