Ever since the previews and the stories cluttered around KSHMR‘s highly anticipated Sunburn 2017 anthem, fans and followers alike were undoubtedly looking forward to the track’s release in late December. Titled ‘Shiva’ and featuring the Italian duo of Marnik and newbie The Golden Army, the single was set to be the headlining track for the end of the year Indian festival. Now that a month has passed since its domination at Sunburn Goa, KSHMR and his Dharma Worldwide label have done their bit to give ‘Shiva’ an official music video that fits right into the track’s style.
Showcasing a keen affinity for ‘Desi’ aesthetics from all over the country, ‘Shiva’ anthem’s video is no exception to KSHMR’s other music videos as it too swirls around the many aspects of Indian culture and, exceptionally, Lord Shiva himself. While the track’s heavy Psy influence is one of its major attractions since release, the video does well to compliment it and raises the bar even further by including footage from the Sunburn performances given by Marnik and KSHMR this year. With its official video surely marking the end of the road for any tweaking with ‘Shiva’ as a release, compliment must be given to the effort put in by KSHMR and Marnik – their yearly anthems have made them as Indian as Sunburn itself.
