Following the release of Theia’s new single ‘Champagne Supernova,’ premiered on George Drive with Dan Aux end of last month, the accompanying music video has arrived.
And it's beautiful.
The video was made in collaboration with members of The Royal New Zealand Ballet and is directed by Chris Lane (Best Music Video 2016 – Avalanche City ‘Inside Out’).
The stunning video features choreography by the Artistic Director of the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Francesco Ventriglia, and performances from dancers Veronika Maritati and Massimo Margaria.
Francesco trained at the Ballet School of La Scala, Milan, before joining the world-renowned ballet company of La Scala in 1997. Upon release ‘Champagne Supernova’ debuted at #1 on the NZ Heatseeker Singles chart and has had over 150k streams on Spotify in just a short couple of weeks. ‘Champagne Supernova’ follows on from Theia’s hit ‘Roam’, which has surpassed 4 million streams on Spotify and charted on Spotify charts in the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
The title of the song, ‘Champagne Supernova’, comes from the book ‘Champagne Supernovas’ about the 90s renegades of fashion, namely Alexander McQueen, Isabella Blow, Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss. Theia was drawn to the juxtaposition of the grandeur and glory; darkness and self-destruction – champagne being a symbol for elegance and supernova being a star that shines its brightest when it’s dying. The song is a way of dealing with inner turmoil or fighting your inner demons - whatever they may be.
