At the top of this year, Dua Saleh released their debut project Nūr, a viscous EP that demonstrated the Sudan-born, Minnesota-based artist's knack for galvanic grooves. One of the highlights of the project is a song called "Warm Pants," a yearning moment of vulnerability colored by Psymun and SinGrinch's production. Today, they're sharing a new video for the track. The Braden Lee-directed clip depicts Saleh as a flicker of heat in an otherwise frigid landscape. Read Saleh's statement on the video below:
“Warm Pants is a story about searching for warmth after being cast into the frigid terrain of heartbreak. In the video, I shift between running across a frozen lake and moving through a sundial, fashioned from tall pillars of ice. The frozen lake signifies the expansive reach of this love story. The pillars represent a state of limbo. I feel trapped in time repeating the same cycles and collapsing into a state of agony.”
