Brooklyn-based trip-hop/rocktronica artist Erica Glyn is debuting her stunning new music video for the incredibly sultry "The Animal" exclusively here with PureVolume today. Check it out below.
"The concept of this song was hard to put into a visual representation—to represent the subtly of the meaning without it being misunderstood or getting hacked up, keeping it classy and portraying the nuances was a real challenge," explains Glyn. "I think it helped that we referenced a time period that was very buttoned-up, prude and unwelcoming of self-possessed female sexuality. I really didn't want it to be harsh, overt or vulgar. So we used the late 1950s/early '60s as our point of deterrence. The video is meant to be exciting, joyful and supportive of women and their own lust for life. Women get carnal, and if they're lucky, they get to express it without judgment from others or themselves."
Her latest record, STATIC—out now!—was written, recorded and produced by Glyn, and features contributions from a collection of well-respected, top-tier artists.
Following the premiere of "The Animal" music video," Glyn plans on taking some time off to work on her new album, which she hopes to have finished by Summer 2013.
