Singer and multi-instrumentalist Cece Vee is back with a brand-new electro-pop banger – and an accompanying music video to boot. A delightfully earwormy tribute to personal growth, “Black Light” is dripping with unapologetic energy from start to finish – and we’re so here for it.
Featuring Vee’s characteristically crisp production and doused in a healthy dose of ’80s-inspired synth, the track is all about bold bass lines and an even bolder message – to walk away when things get toxic and take back your power.
Vee’s captivatingly sultry vocals easily take centre stage in “Black Light” as she navigates the personal lyrics and accompanying melodies – which hover somewhere between dreamy and punchy – with a self-assuredness that can only come from experience on the topic.
The video, directed by Joshua Cookson, captures the essence of the song insofar as it paints Vee in an undeniably unapologetic light. An artistic oeuvre, the video alludes to the internal struggle that comes with deciding to leave, jumping between vivid imagery of Vee dressed in red and darker imagery of her shrouded in shadow.
Pitching and powerful, this is an offering which sets Vee apart with ease.
