Kirin J Callinan, Australia’s most charismatic and confronting musician reveals the video for his latest single ‘EMBRACISM’. The title track of his long-awaited debut, it has already drawn critical praise and intrigue from international and local media for its dangerous lyrics and intense guitar work.

Directed by Cara Stricker, the video for ‘EMBRACISM’ is an evolution from Callinan’s triple j award winning clip for song  ‘Way II War’.  It provides a challenging and intoxicating visual piece that demands attention. Daring in its physicality, it follows Callinan in his morning routine.
