“Bodies” is made up of beautifully alluring, yet aloof and cold, echoing vocals that glide over the hypnotic propelling energy of ominous relentless throbbing basslines together with hard hitting sharp beats and lush synth stabs, blending in a mysterious and ecstatic dance with the shadows, hovering between melancholy and complacency, pain and pleasure.
A memory incites a myriad of emotions, desires, and disappointments in a libidinous tale of passion, domination, and abandonment. Feelings of excitement and arousal mix with lies, cries, and control creating an ambiguous mixture of happiness and sorrow. Until the “heart” of the relationship is finally revealed, “self possession.”
The accompanied video continues the mystery using alternating time sequences, beautiful high contrast resolution, and unfocused lens motion. Opposing hues emphasize the complementary, yet dualistic depth of the relationship. Momentous shifts in time eerily leave the end or the beginning open to interpretation.
