The music video for Yearning‘s lead single “Keep” was co-produced and co-directed with Adam Saewitz who also edited the film. Performers Anthony Rosado and Thomas Beauford feature as dancers. The video is about lost love in multiple senses: the intimacy between partners, but also, the unexpected loss of a loved one through extrajudicial violence. The song “Keep” and its video juxtaposes these two senses of loss, ending with a powerful conversation sampled from James Baldwin’s and Nikki Giovanni’s riveting 1971 conversation on Soul! and sound from one of many protests that Efemèr attended during the uprising for Black lives in the summer of 2020.
