Watch Vanessa Worm's Video For 'Bones And Blood'

Back in Aotearoa following the launch of her genre-defying debut long player VANESSA 77 [a shoe-in for end of 2020 lists imo] via UK tastemakers Optimo Music, Vanessa Worm reveals new visuals for vibey album track 'Bones and Blood'. Filmed mid-winter in Worm's hometown Ōtepoti and co-directed by Conan Hayes and Ruby Harris, the video documents a performance work by Hayes reflecting on the lyrics "an energy reflecting in me through me, being free," unlocking the poetic potential of the remote rural / coastal setting and utilising a variety of costumes designed by Laura Monaghan to magical effect.

Conan Hayes said about the performance: "Allow your dreams and fantasies to play out freely in this reality. Even against that strong wind. Towards that relentless pull. Don’t run away from it next time. Bring it out in the open. In the air. In the water. In the dirt. Get to know your shadow, the black fabric that floats behind you and feel it when it grips back."

'VANESSA 77' is out now via Optimo Music.
