So this is an interesting one…
One minute, you’re dancing through a secluded forest wonderland and strutting through the trees with your fashion-forward friends. The next minute, you’re a trippy, singing fetus in an extremely roomy womb.
The video is a double feature of the two tracks “Exhale” and “Stardust” from ZHU‘s stardustexhalemarrakechdreams EP. The first half plays somewhat like a runway show through natural landscapes whereas the second half turns into a close-up of the human-creation process.
The video stars Leiomy Maldonado, a vogue dancer who’s worked with Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Willow Smith and FKA Twigs. Maldonado’s character is pregnant, which makes a lot of sense as the video moves to its second portion. While it may not be advisable for her to be riding a motorcycle, she still can’t stop artfully moving her hands.
It’s a lot to wrap your head around, so a few views and some post-watching contemplation may be in order. Take some time for yourself.
