Today, Toronto artist, Harrison, shares his self-edited video for Celica Supra. The track is the first from his forthcoming sophomore album, due this fall via Last Gang Records. It follows his debut, Checkpoint Titanium, which received immediate praise, including a 2017 JUNO nomination for Electronic Album of the Year, and spawned two Prism Prize-nominated videos.
On the track, Harrison comments to Indoor Recess, “Celica Supra was actually the song I decided to base the album around. Around that time, I was looking to buy my first car, and there was a Celica Supra up on Kijiji that I was obsessed with. I didn’t end up buying it because it was a project car with way too much work to be done.”
The video continues a series of clips Harrison has been sharing on social media leading up to the release. Executed with audience in mind, the footage syncs with the song, right down to the BPM, with Harrison’s Instagram edits leading into a longer format video.
He explains to Indoor Recess, “Those videos from the late 80s and 90s are footage from a period I idolize, but was never around to experience,” Harrison says of the visual direction for the piece. “I feel like there’s a certain warmth that radiate from the videos especially the ones where people are dancing because of the lack of cellphones. That makes me feel good.” –
