“I’m very involved in the visual aspect of my work”, Gina Kushka said, speaking about the new video for her track, ‘Prayer’. “The beautiful location matched the song, and we used some older footage which made it incredibly special”.
Gina Kushka is a visual artist, songwriter and performer. The ethereal ‘Prayer’ is the second track to be taken from her upcoming EP, due for release next year. Her main ambition, has always been to hone her own craft and to make her mark on the industry as a solo artist.
Produced by Saltwives, the track is a raw and honest account of Gina’s experiences with anxiety. The emotive lyrics are reflective of her artistry, where she continues to blur the lines between art and music. “I try and drive my sound myself as much as possible”, she said after noting on consistently challenging the ‘perfect pop’ formula; one which she was encouraged to pursue throughout the start of her career
Of the video, Gina added, “I wanted this song to demonstrate my vocal with little distraction around it. However, I wanted the video to juxtapose that. I wanted it to feel like there were two time frames happening simultaneously. Both with different emotional states, and lots of engaging imagery”.
