Doe Eye, the musical outlet of multi-talented Maryam Qudus, has released a video for her new track “Shattered,” (which we're already obsessed with), and we’re excited to be premiering it exclusively here at FILTER!
The video is rich in eerie film noir influences, from the black and white tones to the glamorously retro wardrobe. It’s easy to get lost in Doe Eye's doleful brown eyes while she gazes off into the San Francisco skyline, although at the same time a masked man follows her like a shadow.
It’s a classic set-up that perfectly underscores the retro-modern clash that “Shattered” encapsulates. Qudus has the smooth voice of an old-timey lounge singer, but the trippy industrial echoes create a stark contrast between her sultry vocals and the electronic beats; it’s just the sort of musical mishmash that we can get behind.
