In Sevdaliza's "That Other Girl," the Iran-born, Netherlands-based singer describes herself as operating from another world, and it almost sounds like a play for self-preservation. She takes the claim very seriously, in the brand-new video she's released to go along with the track. The clip was directed by Berlin artist duo Pussykrew, who helped her realize her vision of an entirely new world—one that, by the looks of it, is better than the one we're currently stuck in.
Sev's world is all 3D art, finished in a glossy, pearly sheen. In her world, gold tumbles from your head and you're flanked by unidentified precious metals and stones. There's silver and chrome and crystals and marble, and a shiny crown made of flower forms. Some things float, others pour, and a handful of faceless bodies melt into each other. The song is driven by Sevdaliza's icy vocals, and builds from throaty a capella to a vibrating low-end and sad strings. The video, and her world, is gorgeous and a little terrifying, but Sev makes it look and sound like a future worth waiting for. Watch the clip above, and comb through her Soundcloud for more creeping ambient bangers.
