Shamir has shared the video for “Diet,” from last year’s Shamir. The clip was directed by Shamir and Christina Thompson, and features the Philadelphia artist in various locations around Lake Tahoe. Check out the video below.
“The origin of the song is pretty dark, taking inspiration from the film My Friend Dahmer,” Shamir explained in a press statement. “But the deeper meaning of the song is less about the gore or even Jeffrey Dahmer and more about the battle we all have with our darker urges and/or neurosis that tend to appear during our adolescence/pubescent years and how that plays a part in developing our moral compass.”
