Music Video for 'Not Obsessed' by Severine
Director: Todd Muchow / Editor: Anana Kaye
Drawing from a fascinating variety of influences such as electronica rock legend Portishead and Radiohead, the recently released singles reflect Severine’s hypnotic and compelling indie pop vibe, which artfully fuses dream pop, trip-hop and electronic rock. “Not Obsessed” and “Down the Rivers” were penned by Severine and produced by Brooklyn-based producer Anthony “Rocky” Gallo, former chief engineer at The Cutting Room Studios, who has worked with numerous pop icons including John Legend, Norah Jones, Common, Jon Bon Jovi.
"My sound has some kind of softness and sensuality, but with edginess and energy to it. It is both dreamy and upbeat,” Severine says. “The vibe of ‘Not Obsessed’ is deep and smooth, “Down the Rivers” is more intense and passionate." I can have so many emotions swirling around all at once, which definitely helps me in the songwriting process.”
French singer-songwriter born in Westfield, NJ, Severine moved with her family back to their native France at the age of four. She was raised near the Paris suburb of Versailles, where she began singing and expressing her love for music early on. She started piano lessons at a young age, Nina Simone being one of her earliest inspirations, and studied classical music and jazz for 12 years.
After living in Paris, then Mexico and Montreal over the course of two years where she continued singing in different bands, Severine finally settled down in New York City in 2011. She was part of multiple indie pop-rock bands from Paris to New York, but in 2016 she decided to write and record as a solo artist and began immersing herself in the digital audio workshop Ableton, confidently revealing the depths of her musical passion. She has received numerous recognitions from many blogs and magazines, including the Huffington Post, and signed endorsements and music deals with Sennheiser, Mac Cosmetics, Abercrombie & Fitch and GAP.
Severine will be releasing her debut solo EP in summer 2018.
