NEW SINGLE BY SAPPHIRA ‘TEASE’
Out on Monday 19th of August
In a fresh blend of innovative marketing and creative synergy, Tease – a music video by Australian singer/songwriter, Sapphira, is being launched with an unconventional twist combining burlesque, dubstep and global fashion brands that empower women through self-expression.
Tease is the brain-child of progressive burlesque artist and former media sales executive, Sapphira. The song released on Domina Records, brings together Sapphira’s passion for electronic music, theatrical performance and leading fashion companies. The video features professional dancers and students from her burlesque academy, Sapphira’s Showgirls, where she teaches women self-confidence and self-esteem through drama therapy, stage and costume.’
‘Make-up and self expression along with the exploration of our inner desires is key to living a happier life and I wanted to involve my students in this exciting project’, says Sapphira.
Burlesque has enjoyed a revival over the last 10 years but many performers are using songs from a bygone era, I wanted to create new music incorporating a kaleidoscope of new sounds such as electro, breakbeat and drum n bass for dancers to use in burlesque shows, bringing my own theatrical stage craft and academy into the equation. It melds the masculine sound of heavy basslines and beats with the feminine grace of dance, performance and erotica.’
The finished product is the culmination of a global team of talented artists including international award-winning music producers Black Dogs, video director, Mark Bakaitis and editors Remo Camerota, Roger Bolton whose work includes the Prodigy, Nirvana, Banksy, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
