Albert Einstein once said, “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art.”
No one embodies the beauty of mystery and art like LA-based artist, Active Child. And he has never proved this fact more strongly than with his new videos for songs “Midnight Swim” and “Darling” from his sophomore album release, Mercy.
The director, TS&R comments, “The mystery and curiosity begs us to know more and wait for change, if any at all.”
The video stars Alianna Lohan, shot in one single take on film, a portrait captured in a moving picture.
“I knew I wanted something simple and pure to fit the placid tone of ‘Darling,’ says Grossi. “ And once we started shooting the single take of Ali at sunset I knew it was going to be unlike any other video I’ve done or seen really. I love the way it stops time.”
Set on the beach at sunset, the camera follows Lohan in a private moment that leads us in to a portrait like setting upon sunrise. You can watch the video here: http://activechildmusic.com

“A maudlin and sentimental record full of longing and loss, aided by rich analog-sounding synth, plucked harp, and ambient samples.”- Pitchfork
