Indigo Charlie has come a long way from working as a personal assistant for Solange Knowles while working her way through the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles.
Charlie respects her humble beginnings and the people who have supported her along the way immensely, striving to create music that people feel instead of just hear. “Once those words, beats, and melodies hit your bones,” she said in a 2011 interview with Jasmina Cuevas, “I’ve done my job well.”
With its driving synth beats and beautifully echoing melodies, “Float” has done just what Charlie intended her music to do. The music video for the single, released last week, draws on the simplicity of showcase that fashion weeks across the world are known for. Charlie bewitches audiences on the screen with alternating color shots with black and white ones – but, much like the singer herself, even the shots without color feature a splash of her red lipstick, reminding us all of her refusal to be unseen.Tags: Float, Indigo Charlie, Solange Knowles
