LA-based soul/pop band HEЯITAGE™ premieres the music video for “Fashion Slayer” on Medium. The song is the lead single from their latest full-length album, The Color Blue.
“Fashion Slayer” is about fashion, for clothing serves to enhance and influence beauty, evoking feelings of beauty in both the observed and the observer. Fashion gives action to beauty; it is the artful display of achievement, affluence, personality, empowerment, and taste. As HEЯITAGE says, “Fashion is music you can wear.”
Originally from Bermuda, Hannah Eggen (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Gianluca Gibbons (vocals, sax, bass) formed HEЯITAGE in 2011. With their undeniable talent and smooth posh sound, they’ve performed in luxe venues in So-Cal, Colorado, and Bermuda, sharing the stage with superstars like Carlos Santana, Wyclef Jean, The Madden Brothers, Wayne Wonder, Nico & Vinz, Natasha Bedingfield, and DJ Khalid.
Recently selected as semi-finalists for the 2018 International Songwriting Competition in three categories for their first single, “Red Lips,” HEЯITAGE is in august company, as only 10% of the 19,000 entrants move forward as semi-finalists.
“Fashion Slayer” opens on a funky pop melody flavored with hints of R&B savors. The infectious, low-slung and sexy rhythm rides tight percussion and a fat throbbing bass line of galvanizing muscularity. Eggen’s sultry voice echoes with seductive femme fatale filaments, while Gibbons’ smoothly rasping tones infuse the music with a velvety sensual flow.
The lyrics deliver repartee coruscating with chic references and stylish turns of phrase.
“I feel good in my chelsea suedes / Skinny jeans, Armani shades / Hair flowing in a breezy way / Fresh, and we here to stay / Suited and booted, she was ready to go / Threaded by the dapper / She aint hanging with joe / She aint no plain Jane / Diamonds running through her veins.”
The video, directed by Allison A. Waite, features sumptuous visuals of couture. Eggen flashes a gold sequined dress, classic lavish jewelry, and yellow footwear, while Gibbons sports a soft cream jacket over a leopard-print shirt. Both represent the pinnacle of refined fashion.
“Fashion Slayer” is lit, delivering a scrumptiously infectious funky melody, replete with smoldering eroticism and glossy, captivating vocals.
