Maja Francis - Last Days Of Dancing

Swedish fantasy pop artist Maja Francis has today unveiled the music video for her debut single, "Last Days Of Dancing", directed by Sheila Johansson and shot on location in India.

Speaking on the track and the inspiration behind the video, Maja tells Noisey, who premiered the video earlier today:

"It's about growing pain - about growing up and changing and not being ready to. How painful that process can be. It's as if you are this flower bud that knows it will come out on the other side as a big beautiful glittery flower. But getting there hurts so much, so you hesitate. Sometimes when reality hurts I escape to other places in my mind. Fantasy places and real places. One of them has always been India. My mom and grandmother lived there for a short while in the 70s and they took the incenses, Bollywood music and the beautiful warm colors back to my childhood. So, being able to go to India for the first time to shoot my first music video was beyond magical. For seven days I actually lived inside of my own dream, and for once I didn’t have to escape. That’s how the video came out. Like a three and a half minute dream where you can’t tell the end from the beginning. But it’s somehow all connected."

Watch the video for "Last Days Of Dancing" below.

"Last Days Of Dancing" is available now on iTunes in Sweden and will be released here in the US later this summer.
