Video: Julia Holter, “Moni Mon Amie”

Julia Holter’s video for “Moni Mon Amie,” directed by Yelena Zhelezov, plays like a soft focus office romance fantasy with both characters portrayed by Holter. Helpfully, her label RVNG pre-interprets the video in the YouTube description—”The longing transforms the perception of the everyday, turning each moment into a poetic landscape in which the miniature and the gigantic become interchangeable” (Holter gets reflected in a fish bowl, for example)—which lets our brains off the leash a little bit, left to ponder new questions, like how Katy Perry and Justin Bieber got slotted as Related Videos on YouTube, and what that might mean about the ringtone prospects for Holter’s newly released album, Ekstasis. Check her out on a three-month, international tour, the next step toward stadiums (or just a lot of free food and weird places to sleep).
