Watch Vernon Noronha’s Breezy New Video for ‘Dark Red Lines’
Made of tiny clips taken over the course of three days at Ragasthan 2018, the video also serves as an after movie of sorts for the music festival
Mumbai singer-songwriter Vernon Noronha documents his time spent at desert music festival Ragasthan 2018, which took place from February 23rd to 25th, in his new video for his blissful track “Dark Red Lines.”
Consisting of tiny clips filmed over the course of the festival days, the video also serves as an after-movie of sorts with sped-up footage of artists onstage and slow motion shots of relaxed festival goers. Noronha was on the lineup himself on Day Two of the festival.
The track is simple, mellow and features uplifting strums of an acoustic guitar but, according to Noronha, isn’t exactly the happiest. “‘Dark Red Lines’ is a sad song with a happy tune,” he says on his social media. “It’s a song about the current traffic scenario, and the red lines are nothing but the veins you see when you open the maps [apps].” He adds that it is not the final arrangement of the track, but he wanted to keep it simple to match the version he played at Ragasthan. “This song plays a perfect role to the video since most of it was shot in the desert, free from all the freaking traffic lines.”
“Dark Red Lines” was mixed and mastered by producer Anirudh Sankaran and the entire video was filmed exclusively on mobile phones by Noronha and his friends (and fellow musicians) Leron D’Souza and David Britto.
