After a three-year stint in Los Angeles, Davinia Pace has just released her first single since moving back, along with a steamy music video.
The single, Perfectly, is as personal as they get. It talks about getting into a relationship when one of the parties is still carrying baggage from previous relationships. “One side is ready to go all in, while the other side feels like they can’t,” Davinia told Lovin Malta. “The video took a full 16 hours of shooting and countless hours of editing, but it was such a thrill”.
The dark and sexy music video was filmed by popular videographer Steven Levi Vella, who managed to bring the LA aesthetic to life in Malta.
In Los Angeles, Davinia had a sold-out show at the world-famous Viper Room (which had previously hosted the likes of Johnny Cash, Oasis, Iggy Pop, Sheryl Crow and Maroon 5) and opened for rapper B.o.B. alongside Nick Lopez to a crowd of 30,000.
“LA was a magical experience, but I missed home,” Davinia said of her recent experiences in USA. “I felt like I needed to come back to Malta, which is a place that always inspires me”.
In 2013, Davinia placed third at the Malta Eurovision Song Contest with Betrayed, and cemented her fame with the 2016 Reckless, which she had debuted at Isle of MTV that same year.
As for Perfectly, the single is set to take the local and international airwaves by storm with its radio-friendly sound and its risqué music video… which ends with an actual heart getting stabbed.
The Perfectly music video is online on Facebook and YouTube, while the song will soon be available on iTunes and Spotify. Hair and make-up for the video was taken care of by Vigorous and Gabrielle Zammit Grungo respectively.
