[Video] Eternia – Final Offering (ft. pHoenix Pagliacci)

Eternia returns with her first video in over two years. “Final Offering” uses the instrumental from Kendrick Lamar’s “Hii Power” and features pHoenix Pagliacci. The video was directed by Alex Narvaez.

Eternia returns after a two year ‘hiatus’ with an epic verse. Unloading a hailstorm of questions pointed at herself, God, her family, her friends, and her very purpose, ‘Final Offering’ tackles the lows of life, a topic most people avoid with repression and distractions. Eternia dives in, unafraid to reveal her insecurities and self doubt while challenging the very tenets of faith and foundation of family that she was raised on. She is joined by pHoenix Pagliacci, a burgeoning triple-threat in the Canadian music scene, who soars on this track with a poignant reminder to Eternia, and anyone else who is experiencing similar lows, of what “Hii Power” really is.

Director Alex Narvaez (a.k.a. The Can Con Don) contributes a docu-style moving landscape to the raw vulnerability of Eternia’s delivery & content. Doubling as a tribute to Toronto’s historic Kensington Market, Narvaez paints the symbolic picture of Eternia as isolated and alone. But as the chorus uplifts the song, Eternia is joined by a ‘female voltron’: empowered by a support network of talented women who know their own power & purpose, reminding her of her own.

[Audio] The Symphonies – The Future (ft. Eternia & Randall Lobato)

The Symphonies are a group of artists/producers from Los Angeles and are set to release Classic The Mixtape on July 4th. In advance of that project they have released the track “The Future,” which features Randall Lobato and Toronto’s own Eternia.
