Published Jul 22, 2016Anomie Belle will release a new album and accompanying art book titled Flux this summer, but before those arrive on August 26, the Portland-based artist has shared a brand new video for LP cut "Lovers."
The clip was directed by Paco Matteo Li Calzi and pits images of human bodies against striking costuming, set decoration and visual effects.
"'Lovers' is about queer sexuality and intimacy that challenges normative conceptions of relationships," Anomie Belle tells Exclaim! "As an artistic representation of desire, 'Lovers' embodies feelings of both tension and beauty inherent in the complexity of intimacy. Through music and art, we can uncover the more complicated, intuitive, vulnerable, or unresolved parts of human experience that we don't always express on the surface. Through constantly evolving, dreamlike and intimate musical landscapes, I try to juxtapose fragility with desire, struggle with self-knowledge, and complacence with wisdom."
Watch those sentiments merge with Belle's artistic and musical vision by watching the video for "Lovers" below.
A visual art opening will also serve as an album preview with a special appearance by Anomie Belle on August 5 at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco. The show runs until September 10 and features new works from Marco Mazzoni, Redd Walitzki, Mark Demsteader, Kari-Lise Alexander, Casey Weldon, Meredith Marsone, Alessandra Maria, Alex Garant, Alpay Efe, Januz Miralles, Maria Teicher, Antonio Velfin, Alexandra Becker-Black and Zin Lim.
