London-based neo-soul artist Pollena (BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Notion, The Line of Best Fit) has released the video for new single ‘Diamonds’ starring acclaimed writer and actor Jack Holden. 

Star of the critically acclaimed West End show ‘Cruise’ and BBC’s ‘Marriage’, Holden performs as a theater technician on the cusp of exploring his true passion. His first steps into his own limelight represent the journey we’re all on to find ourselves, and is reflected in the other characters we see – parents, families, children, all trying to express themselves in love and creativity.

Each story embodies the track’s core message of fighting against societal pressures that force us into lives and roles we don’t fit:  “I’m tired of society dictating how we should live our lives. With Diamonds, I want to encourage listeners to fight for what makes them happy, for a better, truer life.” Pollena.

Holden stars alongside a cast of dancers and families in the piece conceptualised and directed by Georgia Rajah, best known for her work on the BBC documentary ‘Learning To Grieve.’

The latest track from her debut EP ‘Rising’, ‘Diamonds’ is a glowing house and UK Garage-inspired track with a powerful message. ‘Diamonds’ will be released on 1 November via Team Talk Records, with the video launching the same day.
