Japanese artist Haru Nemuri released her latest single “Inori Dake Ga Aru” (“There’s nothing but prayer”) on major digital platforms, along with the accompanying music video.
The video was shot at a nightclub called Takasaki Guild located in Gunma, Japan, that closed its doors on Mar. 27. Takuhiro Koyama — who shot the videos for “Yume wo miyou” and “Kick in the World” off her first album Haru to Shura — helmed the visuals, which sees the indie singer-songwriter performing the number in a claustrophobic space, standing in the spotlight and drowned in glittery confetti towards the end. Koyama is also the director of the short film that Haru Nemuri first contributed a song as its theme.
The 26-year-old artist donated the hair she cut off in the video to the nonprofit Japan Hair Donation & Charity (JHD&C), which supplies medical wigs made from human hair free of charge to children under 18 with cancer.
