Bondage of the Mind: Arca- “Vanity”

“Vanity”

Mutant

Arca has revealed “Vanity”, the latest song and accompanying video from his forthcoming album Mutant. Shot in Paris, the “Vanity” video carries on the tradition and aesthetic of Mutant’s photography and videos so far and was again shot by Arca himself, this time with some help from Daniel Sannwald.  The creepiness of the video matches the strangeness of the music.  “Vanity” features the chains that enfold you when you let yourself be conquered by your own inflated sense of worth.  I love the way Arca demonstrates the chains that shackle you when the mind attacks itself.  Not for everyone, but Arca definitely makes music and videos for me.  Beautiful.  Arca is to music and video what Mapplethorpe is to photography.
