Juan Wauters has always felt out of step, slightly out of place.
Born in Uruguay he moved to New York a few years ago, this figure operating between two different cultures.
Attempting to find his own way, Juan Wauters was able to channel this into music, a series of drifting, dreamy, but essentially pop documents.
Songwriting that moves from the melancholic to the blissful, his album 'Introducing Juan Pablo' emerged earlier this year to widespread acclaim.
Album highlight 'Lonely' has just received the video treatment, with director Nissim Norré transforming his drifting vocal into a bittersweet narrative.
A clip that tackles perception and isolation, 'Lonely' is beautifully shot but also incredibly affecting.
“Through this video Nissim wanted to cover the feeling of a public figure who’s in constant contact with large crowds but doesn’t get much of the one-on-one meaningful interactions. Also, how through the taste of certain foods we can travel in time and be present in different memories from the past...”
