Close your eyes while listening to "Fun Girls," a collaboration between Amsterdam producer Full Crate and Toronto singer Saidah Conrad, and you might visualize a sweaty crowd with their hands in the air, moving quickly to the track's slinky beat. The second single from Full Crate's On Her Own EP is a candy-coated banger, conjuring the soulfulness of diva house and the playfulness of electro thanks to Conrad's deft vocals.
But for the music video, premiering here today, the duo went for something decidedly more minimalist: four straight-faced dancers executing precise movement, a geometric light structure, and, toward the end, illustrated multi-hued body halos. Maybe they should rename the track, "Fierce Girls" instead? Here's what Full Crate had to say about the video over email:
"Fun Girls" represents the freedom and the beauty of every woman. The video is a dynamic performance of body movements and '80s inspired lights. This one is an anthem for all the fun girls.
