Canadian pop artist Cassie Dasilva is back with a new video for “Unsolicited Contact”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Produced by Hill Kourkoutis (Jules, Serena Ryder), the video for ‘Unsolicited Contact’ was filmed, directed and done entirely by women.
“I wanted the video to be an exaggerated visual of what happened when I received *the* text message,” said Dasilva about the video. “I thought it would be cool to have two visuals running: one where I’m carrying on as if nothing happened — poised, composed, clean, and another where I’m absolutely losing my mind– giving attitude, ripping down decorations, smashing my own cake.”
“I’m really proud of the fact that the ENTIRE cast and crew were either female or non-binary,” said Dasilva. “I think everyone felt really energized and motivated by the amazing team of people we had on board. Overall it was a really collaborative, safe space and we were all so proud to have been a part of it! Also- this was all done during a pandemic… which meant distanced rehearsals with masks, and a fully masked set.”
An Orillia, ON singer-songwriter, Dasilva has been turning heartbreak and introspection into pop anthems since bursting onto the scene in 2018 after the release of the singles “Welcome To My Castle” which peaked at #8 on Spotify’s Viral 50 Chart and “Rough Cut,” produced by JUNO Award-Winning Mike Wise (bülow, Ralph). Dasilva went on to independently release the holiday single “Season’s Greetings” featured at the top of Spotify’s “Christmas in Canada” playlist and in the film “The Christmas Wedding Planner”, and later released “Still in Love” (produced by Mike Wise) in 2019, which outperformed both of her label releases on streaming platforms in only two weeks’ time.
After spending years crafting her own unique sound and finding her voice, Dasilva is gearing up to release her debut EP in 2021, combining intoxicating melodies with the sullen uncertainty of self-discovery through a new-found artistic lens.
