Song of the Day: The Deep End – Opãru

Following the success of debut single, ‘Remember Me’ – named Song of Week by NEW LEASE MUSIC last December – OPÃRU returns with another stunning single, ‘The Deep End.’

The Deep End’ is a love song to her beloved and admires the strengths and the flaws in a relationship, but most importantly it focuses on the depth of what most humans attempt to obtain in their lifetime. This release sees the singer-songwriter and actress whose real name is Dianna St. Hilaire – exchange the classical music element, from her previous single, for a guitar drench/pop affair.

The video for ‘The Deep End’ encompasses the beautiful aspects of nature, blending them with an urban landscape. Featuring stunning time-lapsed visuals of nature at it’s finest, the hustle and bustle of a city at night and a brilliant night of dancing lights, the video highlights the importance of finding compassion for living things and being mindful of your inner animal.

In late 2015, St. Hilaire reinvented  herself as OPÃRU, deriving from the Japanese name of the birthstone opal. OPÃRU‘s roots stem from experimental electronic, 80s synth pop, and alternative rock.
