Shehara is no stranger to the Sri Lankan Music Industry. Her debut album ‘Fountain of Memory’ became Sri Lanka’s first Metal album by a female and together with Rewan Jayatilaka, Izzy Wildchild, Ash Lanthra, and Dimitri Cooray, her self titled band has been facing the adversities of the covid lockdowns head-on by setting the industry ablaze with new music videos.
‘Fidelity’ was directed by Shehara Jayatilaka Napoleon, the Vocalist of the band and the primary message of the video is to seek inner resolve for rage in order to avoid retribution and inevitable downfall.
Where lyrics and ideas meet visuals, the purpose of the symbolic props like the staff and katana was to represent the destruction of inner demons.
The circle of candles represents the vicious cycle humans get trapped in and the wooden box entered into at the beginning of the video is to visually show the entrance into inner-self, almost as if it’s another dimension completely.
The video was shot by Shameem Ismail and Thahani Mohamed in the vocalist’s home garden, with the assistance of her family and friends. The video was edited by the band’s Drummer Ash Lanthra together with Shehara.
