Malaysian-born, Toronto-based singer-songwriter Alex Porat has shared the MV of the title track from her latest mini album.
Alex Porat’s newest music video for ‘miss sick world’ was directed by long-time collaborator Iris Kim, who worked on her previous MVs for ‘Taxi’, ‘dimension’, and ‘forgot to forgive’.
The singer-songwriter shares on the creative process,
“Iris made this beautiful treatment filled with scenic shots of nature and we wanted those moments to represent the dreams and goals that you see yourself striving for. Then right before you reach them a car pulls up and takes you back to reality.”
miss sick world, Alex’s latest mini album released last month, addresses relationship struggles and social issues such as racial prejudice and gender norms.
The nine-track record sees the artist reveal her ‘true self’ to listeners.
She comments on the release,
“I’ve been feeling so emotional having it out. I just did a handful of tour stops and being able to bring this project on tour and perform all the songs feels so fulfilling and like I’m doing the things I could’ve only dreamt of doing when I was a kid.”
Born in Malaysia, the Toronto based singer has charted across Southeast Asia including Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Hong Kong.
