Celestial Skies latest queer pop single ‘A Terrible Lie’ sees singer Chris Selman’s trademark bittersweet lyrics wrapped up in a blanket winter melancholy. Arriving with a new Darius Shu directed music video that showcases the story of lost love and fading relationships, the track originates from their debut album ‘Songs For Blue Romantics’.
Artist Celestial Skies is taking a stand and asking us to abandon our beloved cellular devices on new track, “The Lost Art of Conversation”. Directed by Darius Shu, the music video for this particular track takes us into a world of spontaneity and surprise as it explores the blossoming innocence that comes with the beginning of a queer love story, contrasted with the distraction that modern technology presents.
Celestial Skies drop surrealist visuals for new track “Modern Romance” from their recent debut album. “Modern Romance” represents the upbeat side of the album, with new fast-paced visuals to go alongside. Telling the story of a complicated long-distance relationship, Chris stars alongside London musical performer Sergi Ibanez, directed by Darius Shu.
As for the long-form and social film content, this was created with the new queer production company WendyVision and award-winning queer filmmaker Darius Shu. Today's launch campaign has also been enhanced by its own art commission, Seen at Queer Britain, a project by queer portrait photographer Amy Maidment that captures visitors on the historic opening day.
