Seth Dyer and his girlfriend release new visuals for “Love Song” in honour of Valentine’s Day
Toronto, ON – On Valentine’s Day, Toronto artist Seth Dyer teamed up with his girlfriend to release the video for “Love Song” (shot and edited by Adom Woods, and directed by Charly Prince).
The single dropped back in September but Valentine’s Day was (obviously) the time to drop the video for it.
“Love Song” is a back-to-basics commentary on love. Instead of focusing on material things and gestures, Seth shows us that love only needs itself to thrive. The song is a gesture of love that was written for the special lady in Seth’s life.
And for the record, Seth told us that his all-time favourite love song is “I’ll Make Love To You” by Boyz 2 Men. Check out the “Love Song” video below, and scope our Q&A with Seth after the jump.
Q&A: Seth Dyer
HipHopCanada: Talk to me about your vision for this video and how that all went down.
Seth Dyer: My creative director Charly Prince really helped me envision the idea for this video. We wanted the visuals to have a bit of a ’90s R&B feeling and really come off as authentic to the content of the song. He said that I should be able to look back at the video and feel that it’s a time-stamp for my career and relationship. I hit up Adom again to shoot and edit everything. Everyone involved in the video all met up together to come up with the final edit. It was really a team effort I feel good about it.
HipHopCanada: I think this video really drove home the message from the song; which was that love is something that doesn’t require frills or fancy extravagance. Sometimes the strongest love only requires the simplest of gestures.
Seth Dyer: I think that’s complete truth because at the end of the day if you have nothing are you not allowed to express love? Are you not allowed to love if you don’t have material things to offer anyone? Love is more about the meshing of personalities and you don’t need any extravagance to make that happen.
HipHopCanada: I’m curious… because at the end of the video you put your love song in a box for your girl. Is that actually what happened when you wrote this song? How did that all go down?
Seth Dyer: I wrote the song on my phone so it didn’t go down like that completely. I was actually writing the song in the video but my girl said I need to have better handwriting so I’ll probably make it more eligible and replace it.
