SEVDALIZA Unveils The Gorgeous Visuals for “That Other Girl”

SEVDALIZA’s debut EP, The Suspended Kid is probably one of our favorite EPs released this year. Every single track from the EP and subsequent video has led us into a beautiful state of sonic pleasure and visual hypnosis (see”Backseat Love“,“Sirens Of The Caspian”,”Marilyn Monroe“). But none other song has captivated us more than opening track, “That Other Girl”. With it’s profound lyrics, whispering vocals and minimalist— yet frenetic production; the track’s otherworldly sound is emotionally magnetic and simply impossible to shake off.

Today, the songstress unveiled the beautiful video for the track directed by visual duo, Pussykrew, which shared the following:

In this video, Sevdaliza has fallen victim to her own creation of a safe vacuum. Submissive to deep-rooted emotions and assumptions, Sevdaliza finds herself imprisoned in her own paintings and sculptures. Can she remain unflawed? She has become nothing more than a statue surrounded by surreal environments. Identity becomes a game, however she remains in control of the computed bodies. She breaks the stereotypes of gender roles and constructs to manifest a different notion of cyborgian identity.

Watch!

Zola Jesus – “Nail” [Official Video]

Watch Zola Jesus’ (Nika Roza Danilova) brand new video for “Nail” the brand new single taken from the phenomenal, Taiga!

Video director Jacqueline Castel shares: “The video for “Nail” conceptually explores the dualistic themes of vulnerability and strength, bondage and freedom, death and rebirth in parallel to the lyrical content of the song. Performing within a custom made sensory deprivation bed built by S&M pioneers Kink Engineering, Nika was sealed between sheets of opaque black latex with a high powered shop vac for each take – a physically aggressive and demanding form of restraint that requires breathing through rubber tubing constructed within the bed. Stripped of the superfluities of the flesh, her performance reveals the surreality of the dehumanized form.”

Taiga is out now!

Kali Uchis – “Loner” [Official Video]

We introduced sultry singer Kali Uchis back in June when she dropped her phenomenal debut EP, Por Vida. Now the Pink-haired babe returns with another sexy visuals for “Loner” one of our favorite cuts from the EP!

In the video, Directed by Uchis and Andy Hines, we see the singer driving to an empty, 1950s-styled diner and hotel room for some needed self reflection. “Cause I was a loner until I met you, and I let you in after the persuasion, mind games, manipulations,” Uchis softly sings as neon-pink florescence lights embellish her lonely surroundings.

We’re mad crazy in love with Uchis’ debut EP so be sure to grab a copy! The EP still available as free download here.
