Today, Boniface shares the video for new song Happy Birthday, the first single since their critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album released in February. Listen here, and watch the fabulous video below.
Boniface is the brainchild and primary creative outlet for Canada’s Micah Visser, who uses they/them pronouns. A young artist who has spent the last eighteen months finding not only their voice and this innate ear for deliriously affecting songcraft, but eventually finding themselves too; where they sit, their identity, and what they truly believe in and stand for.
The video features members of Girl Ray, Blaenavon, Ayla Tesler-Mabe (Ludic, Calpurnia) and caroline as well as people from around the world celebrating their birthdays in quarantine. Visser has this to say about the video for Happy Birthday and it’s quarantine inspiration:
"I celebrated my birthday in isolation on April 22nd - it was an odd one and celebrating didn't really seem appropriate. I was so lucky to have a safe place to isolate, but it was still an anxious, lonely birthday and I'm sure this experience wasn't unique to me. the idea for the music video stemmed from that - celebrations in isolation, seen through computer screens and video messages and it goes out to everyone trying to connect or find some joy given the circumstances."
