Desmond Myers returns with “Playing with Fire”
Atlanta-based singer-songwriter and former Her collaborator Desmond Myers follows up his colorful string of singles from 2018 with his moodiest track to date.
Preview the music video here:
“Playing with Fire” Is a sultry ballad about temptation and the destructive force it can be in a relationship. Desmond pushes his higher register front and center over beds of velvety synths and aching guitars.
The music video directed by Lucille Descazaux and Francis Courbin was shot in an abandonded home just outside of Paris. It features French artist Amouë shadow dancing by day, contrasted with Desmond performing by night, lit only by a dim flame.
Desmond Myers is an artist who’s lived many lives, from his origins in rural North Carolina, to a full-time ghostwriter living in Paris, a long running steady gig as the lead vocalist for Le Lido or as a touring member of the band Her, Desmond's authenticity, proficiency in songwriting and enchanting voice have taken him far. His music exudes sensuality and energy, blending American soul and the electronic tinged funk of French house, a sound he honed on both sides of the Atlantic.
Atlanta based but hailing from North Carolina, Desmond began his career in Paris where he began collaborating with artists in the "French touch" scene. Now on his own, in spring 2020 Desmond will release "Playing with Fire", the first single from his upcoming debut album on LVCO records followed by a European and US tour in Spring 2020.
