PREMIERE: Prudence — "Fair Witness"

Share on Tumblr
 



Hailing from Melbourne, Prudence has crafted a sound that's as eclectic as it is adventurous. Her blend of experimental pop, psychedelica and folk The same goes for her videos. Her clip for "Fair Witness" has a distinctly vintage vibe to it, and in less than two minutes takes you on a journey that channels '60s capers.

"Devised and created with visual artist Meagan Boyd, 'Fair Witness' recontextualizes symbols which have resonated through epochs and cultures, from primordial mythologies to the mysterious tarot, and the more familiar emojis of our time," she explains. "I wanted to make the video feel like a soft focus transmission from another time. It draws from imagery inspired by works including Dante’s Infero and the 60s sci-fi classic Stranger in a Strange Land to express the very contemporary concern of inaction in the face of catastrophe."
