Video released for Seth Haapu and Stan Walker's, 'Cool Down'

22 October 2019 - 0 Comments

Award-winning singer-songwriter and producer Seth Haapu recently released Cool Down – a collaboration with Stan Walker – and today has unveiled the striking accompanying video, filmed in Rarotonga.

The video, which premiered with Radio New Zealand this morning, is directed by the award-winning Shae Sterling and mitigates glacial melt with the beauty of Polynesia. The idea came from Seth, who wanted something natural and symbolic of global warming in the Pacific Islands: “Through our Pacific origins, we are custodians of the environment. In the visual, we each express this role as an image of the land and sea.”

The song delivers a powerful message, brilliantly realised with compelling lyrics, crisp R&B beats immersed with Polynesian-instrumentation and a chorus, which simply soars with the sublime vocals of Seth and one of Aotearoa’s most well-known artists, Stan Walker.

Self-produced by Seth, Cool Down features a number of instruments, which are unique to the Pacific, including Pahu (made of native wood and shark skin) which gives a low pulse like a heartbeat; Pate and Rākau, which offer higher tones and can be heard as textured drum lines and the Hue Puruwai, which forms a shaker pattern that sounds like flowing water.
