FLØRIS is back with a music video for an extremely groovy disco-funk single (“Guns For Hire”). This song will have you uncontrollably bursting out into a break dance and start chasing your imaginary dance nemesis. A few of his singles have already made it onto the Apple Music South Africa hot track list, a string of Apple Music and Spotify editorial playlist features, and his latest release jumped to no. 2 after its first two weeks on the 5FM Indie chart.
Starting off 2021 with a bang, FLØRIS releases his debut music video produced by Cape Town based media production company art·hub Productions. Shot in the heart of the Cape Town City Bowl, filled with world class dance choreography, energetic running scenes, and stunning cinematography, this music video is everything you need to get yourself into a dance party mood.
More info about “Guns For Hire”
“Guns For Hire” is a song zoning in on the concept of a person’s creativity being exploited for purposes other than what the creator intended it for. By using the metaphor of a mercenary or “gun” for hire, the song compares the similarities between this mercenary and a creative’s struggles. The song focuses on the after-effects and feelings that a creative has to deal with after offering up their art, in the same way, that a mercenary would deal with the realisation of the senseless violence carried out for a cause that they never believed in.
