Watch AYER Trek Through Sexual Fantasy In The Music Video For 'Digital Fantasy'

Brooklyn based vocalist, electronic recording and visual artist AYER has a new music video out for “Digital Fantasy” — the first single off his independent debut six-track EP, In My Headphones — out April 28th. The video is a gorgeous collaboration with photographer Rick Day and director Steve Benisty that explores sexual fantasies through the lens of Rick’s striking portraiture. The song and accompanying video “comment on the conflict of perception and reality in a world where sexual fantasies are only a few taps of the phone away.”

“‘Digital Fantasy’ was born from an internal conflict,” AYER said, “the desire to find love organically, in real life, when there is a constant stream of perfectly edited, cropped, and altered headless torsos that one sees on various online forums and apps. Rick, Steve and I looked to Robert Mapplethorpe’s graphic yet classical black and white photography for inspiration as we created the vignettes you see unfold in the video.”
