Arca surprises us with a new song and video from his forthcoming, self-titled third album, watch it below.
Shot in one take and featuring Arca (aka Alejandro Ghersi), the new video for ‘Reverie’ was created by longtime visual collaborator Jesse Kanda, who has also directed the video for previous cut, ‘Anoche’ and created the stunning artwork for Arca.
In ‘Reverie’, Arca is a wounded matador, made mighty with mechanical legs, or bleeding onto falling flower petals “Bullfighting is a piercing metaphor: you are fighting a bull, and at the same your self. You are not the victim or the oppressor, you are both— Animality and bestiality are conflated,” he says. “Evoking sex invokes our animality.” On this new album, the opposite also holds true. “And evoking our animality, in turn, invokes spirituality.”
